Resort Tax Funding

FY23 Project Applications

Project applications for FY23 funding were due on Thursday, March 31st, 2022. The Board of Directors is currently reviewing all applications submitted in preparation for the review meetings on June 6th & 10th.
The District’s locally elected Board uses your feedback to help guide them in making strategic community investments. 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.
This allocation, it’s important to note, that FY23 is the first cycle without operating requests from local government organizations. Those funds are committed through Interlocal commitments reviewed annually but applied for on a revolving 3-year cycle. Interlocal commitments for FY23 are $5,176,784.
This year’s project proposals total 66 projects sponsored by 21 organizations. The total FY23 request is $8,765,234.
We invite you to participate in the application process by reviewing project applications below.
