Rural.utah.gov, a new website provided by Utah's Office of Rural Development, will provide rural Utah businesses with access to information about unique resources available to rural firms.
"There is a lot of information on the Internet to help businesses," said Ed Meyer, director of the Office of Rural Development. "The problem is that rural Utah entrepreneurs can become frustrated wading through this information to find what they need. Rural.utah.gov includes a Rural Resource Center to help them get to specific information about rural Utah business resources," added Meyer.
Also included is a Rural News section that spotlights news about rural Utah and accesses a wide range of newsletters relating to rural economic development issues. For those rural entrepreneurs who just want a question answered, the website offers a Help Desk through which the businessperson can ask any question and receive a personal response by email
