In the spirit of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) protects religious entities from state and local zoning decisions that might burden religious liberty. This federal statute (i.e., law) is found in 42 U.S.C. § 2000cc.

Local legislative and zoning bodies need to be aware of this law to avoid violating it—even by accident—especially when enacting land use ordinances and approving or denying land use applications. Though it should be noted that the precise interpretation of the statute varies throughout the U.S. 

Additionally, the State of Utah has also enacted its own version of the RLUIPA, found in §63L-5-201 of Utah State Code (as amended) more commonly known as the Utah Religious Land Use Act.

Special Note: The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman has provided funding for this training program from the 1% surcharge on all building permits in the State of Utah.
