Dedicated to facilitating business growth and economic vitality in Utah's rural communities.
It is beneficial to the entire state to have a strong rural economy. The Office of Rural Development coordinates with rural jurisdictions and businesses for community improvements and economic development strategies. An element of this strategy is to identify barrier to economic growth. Governor's Rural Partnership Board made up of rural leaders and businessmen, provides input and assist with the economic barrier strategy.
We are major funding partners for your regional Utah Small Business Development Center and Procurement Technical Assistance Center and are committed to helping these organizations bring their services to your businesses.
Business expansion and development will continue to be the driving economic forces in rural Utah. The Rural Office works with economic development partners to assist businesses. Utah offers incentives to encourage business expansion. The Rural Office works with business to assess economic barriers and strategies for their removal.
Two programs we administer that impact rural Utah's tax environment are the Utah Enterprise Zone Tax Credit and the Utah Recycling Market Development Tax Credit Program.
The Office of Rural Development supports local rural communities develop and implement their economic or community development strategies. This is provided through both technical and financial assistance. Financial assistance provided thought our Rural Development grants.
