Grants

Occasionally, to support Utah businesses, the Legislature allocates grant funding and programs to our office. Although our various teams and initiatives operate different grant programs, we've combined them all on this page. We've also included information about previous grants for your reference.

If you have any questions about Office of Economic Opportunity grants, please get in touch with us.
