Community and Economic Development
Salt Lake County helps Revitalize Neighborhoods and further the Mayor's Quality of Life Strategy by awarding the federal grant funds it receives to Non-Profit and Governmental Agencies. The intent is to utilize these funds as part of a collective strategy to increase job growth, expand educational opportunities and foster healthier families by addressing the identified education and income needs as well as fundamental housing, food, health and safety concerns.
This also includes providing infrastructure and facility improvement needs in areas of low opportunity and to reach the undeserved communities.
Funding Priorities have been identified as well as eligible service categories, eligible performance indicators, tools required to measure performance and short-term and long-term outcomes.
