Call for Community Grant Proposals
The Grant Committee, a subset of the Steamboat Springs Education Fund Board (EFB) is excited to announce its grants program for the coming year. Community Grant applications will be vetted by the Grant Committee and awarded by the Board in a competitive process based on available funds. 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 2022 granting cycle included Integrated Community, Northwest Colorado Health, Opera Steamboat, Partners in Routt County, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Steamboat Symphony Orchestra, Junior Achievement, Steamboat Dance Theatre, STARS, and Yampatika. Community Grant recipients from the spring 2020 granting cycle were limited due to COVID-19 and the anticipated impact on sales tax revenue. The following organizations we awarded grants in 2020: Integrated Community, Northwest Colorado Health, and Partners in Routt County.
- January 13, 2023 – Community Grant Applications are due
- May 17, 2023 – Community Grants awarded by the Board
Funds are to be deployed in the following academic school year.
So sorry - the submission period has ended.
