Air Assist Grants For Small Businesses– Now Accepting Applications
UCAIR, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and the Utah Department of Workforce Services (DWS) have partnered together to provide grants for small businesses through the new “Air Assist” program. The grants are now available for small businesses with fewer than 100 employees to assist them in making upgrades to their current equipment to reduce emissions and improve air quality.
The UCAIR Grants program encourages businesses, government and non-profit organizations to invest in emissions-reducing and energy-efficient technology. The program is meant to foster creative thinking and will be based on solid metrics that can show actual pollution reduction. This grant period is currently closed. A new cycle will be announced here when available.
