SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — As of March 1, Summit County has officially opened applications for its Restaurant Tax Grant Program, inviting governmental entities, governmental subdivisions, and nonprofit organizations to apply. This year’s grant funding has surpassed $4 million, a $274,000 increase from 2023.

The Restaurant Tax Grant, detailed on the Summit County website, is designed to support projects that will contribute significantly to attracting new tourists, with a focus on utilizing the funds for the primary purpose of tourism development. With a deadline set for March 28 at 5 p.m. MST, applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals online.
