Resort Tax Funding

Funding Cycle

Resort Tax is reinvested in our community through Government and Nonprofit grants. The FY25 Grant Cycle is now closed, but Microgrant requests can be made throughout the year. The list of FY25 commitments can be viewed on the Allocations page.

If you were awarded Resort Tax funding, or if you are interested in applying for a Microgrant, see below for payment request details and application instructions.

Microgrant Fund

In February of 2024, the Big Sky Resort Area District (District) board updated the procedure for the Microgrant Fund (formerly the Opportunity Fund). Requests can be made for projects no more than $25,000 that meet the requirements outlined in District procedures. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are depleted.

Please note due to the annual application review applications will not be reviewed until the July 2024 meeting, please plan your request accordingly.

If you have any questions, please call the office at 406-995-3234.
