MAG strives to strengthen economic vitality, competitiveness, and opportunity for communities and residents in our region.
The Mountainland Economic Development District (MEDD) advances economic growth and opportunity by fostering regional collaboration, preparing regional plans, and facilitating federal investments in our communities.
The MEDD is guided by six strategic goals identified in the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS):
The Mountainland Small Business Loan Fund creates permanent, long-term jobs within the region by providing gap and start-up financing to qualified businesses for eligible activities. Loans made through the fund are intended to help bridge the gap created by shortfalls in commercial financing. Funds are repaid into the program and recycled to other businesses, producing an ongoing job creation program. Funds are available for businesses in Utah (excluding Provo, Orem, and Lehi), Summit, and Wasatch Counties.
