Salt Lake County residents who are not enrolled in SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) have to apply separately for P-EBT to receive a credit of up to $308 per child. Enrollment started August 1 and ends August 31. Learn more at uah.org or apply at jobs.utah.gov/pebt.

Free Face Masks

kids wearing face masksThe "Mask for Every Utahn" effort is underway in the state.

This is a state of Utah initiative, in partnership with the Utah Manufacturers Association, to help Utahns who may not have a face mask and are returning to the workplace or going out in public. The mask initiative is for all Utahns, especially those who:

  • Don't already have a face mask,
  • Aren't able to make a face mask or get one from someone else, and
  • Aren't able to purchase a face mask.

The state will provide one mask to each resident who needs one, and will mail — upon request, once, and free of charge — up to six masks to each Utah residential address. 

Visit https://coronavirus.utah.gov/mask/ to request your mask.
