Specific programs include the Utah Department of Workforce Services (DWS), Workforce Investment Act (WIA), and the Short-Term Intensive Training (STIT).

and expansion of both businesses new to Utah and companies who are
already located in Utah who are looking at major new expansions that
will create significant new job development.
like the EDTIF has similar requirements for new jobs and capital

or capital investment and can payout appropriated post-performance cash
while the ETIF issues tax credits. Consequently, IAF awards are
substantially smaller and less common than ETIF incentives.
