SugarHouse CBA cash to be distributed

The SugarHouse CBA requires the casino to pay $175,000 a year to a nonprofit Special Services District, and the first installment of that money will soon be distributed to community groups. (The amount of annual funding varies according to a schedule set out in the CBA.)

On Wednesday, the SSD board will hear presentations from five community groups at a meeting open to the public. Some of the $175,000 may be held in the account and distributed later in the year.

Information about the public meeting can be found here. Grant application forms can be obtained by emailing

Update Jan. 26, 2010: For information on the board's disbursements, see here.
