About the Downtown Alliance

The Downtown Alliance is a 501c6 nonprofit organization dedicated to building a dynamic and diverse community that is the regional center for culture, commerce and entertainment.

Established in 1991, the Downtown Alliance represents more than 2,500 business and property owners in the Central Business District, which is bounded by North Temple, Interstate 15, 400 South, and 300 East. A special assessment on commercial properties in the CBD helps to fund the Downtown Alliance. Our approximately $2.5 million budget is comprised of 40 percent special assessment funds and 60 percent sponsorships, donations, attendance fees and partnerships with other organizations. The Downtown Alliance became a strategic partner of the Salt Lake Chamber in 2003 and shares office space and administrative resources with the Chamber.
