With more than $4,945.00 million dollars in grants and additional local government funding sources of $3,942.00 million dollars, the majority of the federal budget in government grants is put into the business sector every year as small businesses and large corporations are the foundation of the economic growth in Utah. There are 58,115 business establishments in the state of Utah, and they break down to the following:

If you are in the farming industry, you may be eligible to apply for small business grants as well. There are more than 17,000 farms in the state of Utah.

Starting and managing a small business in Utah is not an easy task. Over $37,848,144,000.00 US dollars are paid to employee salaries/payroll alone in the state of Utah and more than 17,043 businesses declare bankruptcy every single year. Although the federal government does not publically provide grants for starting and expanding a business, in Utah, some small business grants are given to business owners to start and grow their ventures, and grant recipients do not have to pay back the funding from government. Therefore, it makes sense to look into small business grants as one of your sources to fund your business.
