Each year, the District awards funds for critical projects that make our community such a spectacular place to live and work. Our funding decisions amidst COVID-19 will require us to make strategic investments through fiscally responsible decision-making. To do so, the District has temporarily moved funding decisions into 6-month cycles (spring and fall.) We invite the Big Sky community to engage in our ‘virtual’ process, send comments to Info@ResortTax.org, and make public comment at the meetings.
The FY21 Fall Application Review and Award Decision meetings will be held remotely using Zoom and live-streamed on the Explore Big Sky Facebook page. To view Applications visit: ResortTax.org/funding

Public Comment:

Suggestions for productive public comment:
    • Include your full name and your address.
    • Share your feedback for projects and their outcomes.
      • For example: I support x project because it does y for the greater good of Big Sky.
    • Broad based feedback for organizations does not communicate to the District why a project is important and therefore, how project outcomes meet community need.
      • For example: I support x organization, fully fund (does not communicate project outcomes.)
    • If you are sharing written comment, please submit prior to the October 29 deadline.
