General Information

Park City partners with local nonprofits to provide valuable services to the community through Special Service Contracts (SSCs). Different types of services are funded through SSCs, including cultural events, educational programs, emergency services, mental health services, and more. Special Service Contracts are awarded through a competitive RFP process and applications are evaluated by the Special Service Contracts Committee.


Per policy, organizations must meet the following criteria in order to qualify:

  • Hold a federally recognized not-for-profit status or apply under a fiscal sponsorship with a not-for-profit organization 
  • Demonstrate why proposed program/activity is needed and the specific benefit to the City
  • Demonstrate fiscal stability and sound governance
  • Meet other applicable criteria depending on the SSC category
