Summit County Council approves RAP Tax grants

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — The Summit County Council approved the 2022 recreation, arts, and parks (RAP) tax grant recommendations at their meeting on Wednesday.

The funding is generated via a 0.10% sales tax on certain goods and was created to support the funding of local arts and recreation organizations.

Summit County residents first approved the tax in 2000, and it was renewed both in 2010 and 2020.

A total of $1,225,000 was dispersed among 20 different organizations. The Park City Historical Society & Museum lost out on $72,000 in funding due to a lack of proper financial reporting. Mountain Town Music was penalized $10,000 due to incomplete reporting.

That $82,000 was reallocated based on a pro-rate percentage. For example, if an organization was allocated 8.2% of the overall amount, then they received 8.2% of the $82,000.
