Local Funding Options

Weber Cares Grant

WeberCARES grants are intended to assist small businesses with a portion of their COVID-19 related expenses and a portion of business losses incurred, based on the priorities outlined. WeberCARES grant applications will be accepted until all available funds have been awarded.

Ogden Cares Grant

The Ogden CARES Business Grant Program provides grants to support businesses that have an unmet financial need due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The program is funded by the federal coronavirus relief fund, which was established by the CARES Act.

To qualify for Ogden CARES, businesses must be located within Ogden City (see map) and have a current Ogden City business license. The business must also demonstrate an unmet financial need due to COVID-19. Businesses having received other federal, state, and/or local COVID-19 assistance may apply for an Ogden CARES grant, provided they demonstrate the business still has an unmet financial need. Businesses located within Weber County, but outside Ogden City, should apply for the county’s grant program, Weber CARES.

Support Ogden Dining Fund for Impacted Workers

The Support Ogden Dining Fund for Impacted Workers is open to restaurants, bars and other food service facilities that have closed or have significant change in services due to covid-19. Submitting this application does not guarantee funding. We will be randomly selecting from these submissions to fund employees as money is available. 


Emergency Loan Fund (COVID-19)

Ogden City’s Emergency Loan Fund is available to help companies immediately affected by COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are committed to responding to COVID-19 and its related economic impacts, and these loans are intended to support companies during a short period of economic hardship.

Loans up to $10,000 are available for working capital to help businesses with expenses such as rent and payroll. General loan terms are provided below:

  • Loans amount: Up to $10,000
  • Interest rate: 0%
  • Term: 10 years
  • Deferred payment: Up to 12-month deferral on payment 

To better serve businesses in Ogden, the application and review process for loans has been streamlined. The following documentation is required:

  • Loan Application
    • Note: the $100 application fee will be deducted from loan proceeds
  • Most recent, available federal tax return (business and personal)
  • Both the most recent year and current month-to-date profit & loss statements
  • Both the most recent year and current month-to-date balance sheets
  • Entity’s organizational documents
  • Current driver’s license
  • Current Ogden City business license
  • Payroll verification 

At present, there is limited funding available for loans and a high volume of applications is anticipated. Businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Loan funding will be prioritized based on urgency of need. Ogden City is pursuing additional funding to support this loan program.

Flexibility on collateral and LTV (loan-to-value) requirements will be provided on a case-by-case basis. A personal guarantee is required from all applicants and their spouses (if applicable).

The Emergency Loan Fund application is available in English and in Spanish/en Espanol. Applications should be submitted by e-mail. We encourage businesses to confirm eligibility prior to applying by contacting the Business Information Center (BIC) by phone at (801) 629-8613, or by e-mail.
