Regional Capital Improvements Planning


for Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board (CIB) Applications

(This page was updated on May 3, 2021)



WHAT IS THE UTAH PERMANENT COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND BOARD?

It is a very important source of funding frequently utilized by eligible entities in Utah to implement capital improvements projects. The funding comes through what is known officially as the "Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board" but is more commonly referred to as the "CIB".  Projects, in order to be eligible to apply for funding, must be on the current, county-level-prioritized, Community Impact Board Application List  (please see the one-year lists for each of our region's five counties below). An exception to this requirement if an unforeseen project becomes necessary because of a bonafide emergency or other compelling reason with such determination to be made by the Community Impact Board.

The Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board provides loans and/or grants to state agencies and subdivisions of the state which have or may be socially or economically impacted by mineral resource development on federal lands.  Under the Federal Mineral Lease Act of 1920, lease holders on public land make royalty payments to the federal government for the development and production of non-metalliferous minerals. 

In Utah, the primary source of these royalties is the commercial production of fossil fuels on federal land held by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.  Since the enactment of the Mineral Lease Act of 1920, a portion of these royalty payments, called mineral lease payments, has been returned to the state in an effort to help mitigate the local impact of energy and mineral developments on federal lands. The state of Utah then allocates 32.5% of the royalties as Permanent Community Impact Funds. The PCIFB will only fund those applications which are submitted by an eligible applicant for an eligible project.

The Utah statute creating the Board specifically defines eligible applicants as any of the following: counties, special service districts, cities, special improvement districts, towns, water conservancy districts, water or sewer improvement districts, building authorities, housing authorities, and in certain narrow circumsances, school districts

Staff of the Five County Association of Governments provides technical assistance to local communities,counties, special service districts and others in this region to prepare a Capital Asset Self-Inventory (CASI) database and from that self assessment develop a Capital Improvements progrohgam for the entity for development projects proposed in the short-term and longer time periods. These include "brick and mortar" projects as well as other large capital expenditures.   From the CASI and Capital Improvements Planning process specirfic actionable Community Impact Board applications for funding are identified.  Those are the projects shown on the lists above.  Services are available by the Five County staff to assist you in filling out and completing the CIB application form itself when applying for CIB funding.
