Youth Recreation Grant Program

Each year the Tooele City Mayor holds an annual benefit golf tournament to raise funds for local leadership scholarships and local youth recreation programs.  Thanks to our sponsors in 2022 the tournament had proceeds of over $16,000.  Proceeds will go toward three (3) $500 leadership scholarships for local graduating high school seniors, the Oquirrh Hills Junior Golf Program, and the remaining money will benefit local youth recreation programs through a grant process.

This grant is funded by the Mayor’s Annual Golf Tournament and is dedicated to supporting youth programs in Tooele City. Partial funding requests may be awarded based on the discretion of Tooele City and on the number of youth benefited through funding.  If qualified applications exceed the funding available for the grant program a predetermined scoring scale will be used to rank the applications.  An application does not guarantee funding.

• Can apply for up to $2,000 per applicant;
