Layton City Receives Additional COVID-19 Relief Funding

Layton City recently received additional federal Community Development Blog Grant (CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help prevent and respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The City plans to prioritize the unique needs of low- and moderate–income persons and continue its support of its partnerships between Lantern House, Open Doors and Safe Harbor. Grant monies will be administered by the City’s Community & Economic Development department.

Funds are still available for small businesses through Layton City’s Small Business Financial Assistance Grant. This assistance is also provided by HUD and available to local Layton City businesses impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The funds may be used by employers to offset wages for qualifying employees.

Employers may submit an application to Layton City for the following on a first come, first serve basis until all funding is expended: Up to five (5) employees per business, may include one (1) qualified owner, up to two (2) weeks of actual wages per applicant.

Applicants requesting assistance must qualify under HUD, be the owner of a currently licensed Layton City business with a registered business address in Layton City to which the application is being applied. Employees receiving assistance must be a resident of Layton City and whose wages are within the low- to moderate-income range.
