What is a Sales Tax Grant (STG)? The Saguache County Sales Tax Grant was established through a ballot initiative that created a fund to distribute to individuals, groups and organizations to better the Saguache County community as a whole. It is derived from a 1% sales tax on most goods sold in Saguache County, and is distributed through a grant process determined by the County Commissioners.
Submissions are closed and will re-open in Spring 2024.
What types of grants are funded?
Grant are awarded in three main categories:
- Youth and Senior services and programs
- Alternative Energy projects and/or business/job creation opportunities
- Emergency Services, Public Health and Safety.
Note: The amount of funds in each category, and number and amount of requests in each category is public information, as is amounts awarded and to whom.
What size grants are available?
Grants range from $500 - $7,500
