The Steamboat Springs Education Fund is a non profit organization created to manage the proceeds of a half-cent city sales tax that was originally approved by Steamboat voters in 1993 to fund “public k-12 educational purposes.” In 2009, voters extended the tax and expanded the purpose to share a portion of the proceeds of the tax with other Routt County public schools.
The Education Fund Board (EFB) administers the funds collected from the half-cent sales tax and provides accountability for all spending toward the fund’s mission. There are 11 voting members of EFB, nine at-large and two Commission representatives. Board members are appointed for two-year terms.
The EFB hopes to renew the half-cent sales tax by ballot initiative in 2018, becoming effective in 2019.
