Several new initiatives that will help reactivate Utah’s economy were approved in H.B. 5010 during the Utah Legislature’s 5th special session of 2020, held June 18 and 19. The following are highlights of legislative programs that utilize federal CARES Act funds and focus on Utah economic recovery. The Legislature amended and assigned initiatives to the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) to implement and manage.
“These initiatives will help boost Utah’s economy and help keep Utahns safe,” said Val Hale, GOED’s executive director. “We’re grateful for the federal CARES Act funds and that the Legislature has entrusted us with administering these important programs. We will use these funds most efficiently and effectively. We hope that companies and individuals that qualify will take advantage of these pandemic recovery initiatives.”
