MAG's Community and Economic Development team has implemented 11 CARES Grant-funded programs in response to COVID-19. Through these programs we’ve assisted over 1,600 businesses and 120 non-profit organizations in Summit, Wasatch, and Utah Counties. With $24 million invested in our region, these awards have kept employees working, business operating, and non-profits serving in our communities.
Although the application period for these CARES programs has passed, MAG has resources available for small business, non-profit organizations, and cities and towns in our service area. Visit our small business loan program if you are a small or start-up business ready to grow. Visit our Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs if you are a local government or non-profit in need of grants to serve low- and moderate- income residents. Visit our Economic Development page if you are working with communities to foster economic recovery and resilience. Apply for our Utah County Restaurant Assistance Program (from April 1 to July 1, 2021) if you are a restaurant, bar, and/or cafe in Utah County, Utah that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

MAG's Aging and Family Services team has successfully moved our community classes online and supports an active online caregiver support group.

Our online classes are filling up quickly, so if you would like to find out more or register for a class then visit our Community Education page.
