FY23 Funding Cycle
Over the course of two meetings on June 6 & 9, 2022, the District’s locally elected Board used your feedback to help guide them in making strategic community investments. FY23 awards (not including $5,176,784 of preexisting interlocal commitments) total 63 projects sponsored by 21 organizations for a investment of $7,998,179.
Since 1992, over $80 million in Resort Tax investments have played a significant role in funding priority programs and projects throughout Big Sky. Included in these are: Arts & Education, Economic Development, Health & Safety, Housing, Public Works, and Recreation & Conservation. These dollars have been a pivotal tool for funding Big Sky’s priorities.
