Wasatch County Trails, Arts, and Parks grant applications due May 30

WASATCH COUNTY, Utah – The Wasatch County Trails, Arts, and Parks (TAP) Tax Advisory Board opened its spring 2024 grant application period back in April. This new grant, funded by a local sales and use tax approved by voters in 2022, aims to enhance trails, arts, and parks within the county. The 1/10 of a percent tax, which equates to $0.01 for every ten dollars spent, went into effect in 2023. The first TAP grant will be awarded this year.

Applications for the grant must be submitted via email by May 30, 2024. The grants are divided into three tiers:

– Tier 1: Grants up to $4,999, with the full amount given upfront.
– Tier 2: Grants ranging from $5,000 to $150,000, with half of the funds awarded at the beginning of the grant cycle and the remainder dispersed upon project completion.
– Tier 3: Projects or trail grants over $150,000, following the same disbursement pattern as Tier 2.

Applicants must provide 30% matching funds of the total project cost, with up to half of the match permissible through in-kind donations, provided they are documented accurately.

Evaluation criteria for the TAP grants include:

– Arts: Quality and significance of the artists, organizations, or services involved and their impact on the local arts scene.
– Parks: Project feasibility, budget appropriateness, clarity of goals, and ADA access.
– Trails: Public accessibility, project feasibility, and budget appropriateness.
