Community Impact & Revitalization Funds
Regional Planning Program (RPP)
- The core mission of the Permanent Community Impact Fund Board (CIB) is to mitigate socio-economic impacts resulting from natural resource development on federal lands.
- Through the proposed program the CIB will provide stability for continuous quality planning throughout rural Utah.
- Provide funds for participating regional Associations of Governments (AOGs) to commit a full-time planner, whose time and responsibilities will be dedicated solely to the core mission and goals of the CIB.
- Establish a five-year program to implement the general goals of the CIB in each of the following five planning regions:
- Bear River
- Five County
- Six County
- Southeastern Utah
- Uintah Basin
- The RPP will be flexible in its requirements to allow for the development and implementation of regional and local goals.
- The CIB will provide funding through an annual, renewable, contract for a full-time planner dedicated to the RPP in each region.
- The planner will assist communities in the region to address the impacts of natural resource development, including the cyclical nature of such development.
- Commit a full-time planner, who reports to the AOG, but whose time and responsibilities will be dedicated solely to the core mission and goals of the CIB.
- Analyze the impacts of natural resource development.
- Determine the needs of the communities impacted by such development.
- Evaluate the communities’ assets and capacity to meet their needs.
- Create capital improvements list for each county.
- Provide technical assistance to communities to meet their planning needs.
- Assist communities to prepare grant applications for planning and capital improvement needs, in particular, applications to the CIB.
- Outputs and programmatic activities will have a direct relationship to the efforts of the communities and CIB to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of natural resource development.
- Establish a system, that is mutually responsive to the CIB and AOG, for furthering and evaluating the program outcomes.
- Submit work product and quarterly reports to the CIB, updating progress on goals 1-9 above.
- Coordinate planning activities that use CIB and other State funds.
- Coordinate requests for State planning funds, including CDBG, Housing, Quality Growth and GOPB.
- Provide planning services for communities by coordinating training, identifying funding sources, drafting requests for proposals, reviewing draft plans and ordinances, and advising, including attending public meetings – all with due consideration to the time and fiscal constraints of this program.

- Respond to program evaluations and recommendations from CIB staff.
- Provide training sessions and coordination meetings for planners to acquaint them with RPP requirements and other planning resources, including other agencies as appropriate.
