Grants to Utah nonprofit arts and culture organizations and government agencies to improve recreational facilities and cultural arts programming in eligible locations. For organizations, funding may be used for programs in a wide range of disciplines related to arts and culture.

Three types of CARE grants are available for nonprofit organizations:

  • Major Grants
  • Mid-Major Grants
  • Mini-Grants

Facilities Grants are available to government entities.

According to state law, CARE tax revenue may only be used for (1) capital development and ongoing operations of government-owned or operated recreational and cultural facilities, and (2) operations of nonprofit cultural arts organizations. Recreational facilities include parks, playgrounds, golf courses, athletic fields, gymnasiums, swimming pools, trail systems, or other facilities used for recreational purposes. Cultural facilities include museums, theaters, art centers, music halls, or other cultural or arts facilities. Under state law, government-owned or operated facilities are the only facilities eligible for CARE funds.
