Call for Community Grant Proposals
The Grants Commission of the Steamboat Springs Education Fund (SSEF) is excited to announce its grants program for the coming year. Community Grant applications will be vetted by the Grants Commission and awarded by the Education Fund Board in a competitive process based on available funds. This year, the application deadline is Wednesday, January 23, 2019, with final award decisions made at the Education Fund Board meeting on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, with the intention that funds will be deployed in the following school year (2019-2020).
Community Grants are awarded to community organizations that provide educational programming for students in the K-12 public schools in Routt County.
Each grant application is reviewed and recommended for funding based on merit and should be aligned with the Fund’s mission. Past funding is not a guarantee of future funding. Community Grants require collaboration with the districts.
Community Grant recipients from the Spring 2017 granting cycle included Integrated Community, Junior Achievement, Partners in Routt County, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Yampa Valley Autism Program, and Yampatika.
