Call for Community Grant Proposals
The Grant Commission of the Steamboat Springs Education Fund is excited to announce its grants program for the coming year. Community Grant applications will be vetted by the Grant Commission 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 2019 granting cycle included Integrated Community, Junior Achievement, Northwest Colorado Health, Opera Steamboat, Partners in Routt County, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Steamboat Symphony Orchestra, Yampa Valley Autism Program, 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 15, 2021 – Community Grant Applications are due
- May 5, 2021 – Community Grants awarded by the Board
Funds are to be deployed in the following academic school year.
So sorry - the submission period has ended.
