2021 Community Support Funding Request Deadline Looms

Community Support-Yampatika Hike

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 10, 2020-Over the past decade, more than $4 million has been available through the City of Steamboat Springs Community Support Funding, housed at the Yampa Valley Community Foundation, to qualifying organizations. The first funding application deadline for the upcoming 2021 year is Friday, September 18, 2020.

“While each coalition has a specific deadline, any entity interested in applying or one that isn’t currently part of a coalition, should submit materials by the September deadline,” stated Finance Director Kim Weber. “No one should miss out on these valuable funds, so the earlier you contact the Community Foundation the better and definitely by September 18.”

The City of Steamboat Springs City Council allocates several hundreds of thousands of dollars in funds each year to assist community organizations that fall within one of the following allocations coalitions – Arts & Culture (Oct. 15 deadline), Environmental (Oct. 5 deadline) and Human Resource (Sept 18 deadline). Applications are ranked on a set of criteria by a selection committee with expertise in the coalition focus.

Community Support requests must relate to the following criteria:

  • Activity/program reduces city service requirements; fulfills a city goal; or aligns with City Council’s Mission, Vision and Values
  • The grant is not more than 30% of the organization’s total budget
  • Organization indicates there is strength/diversity among their other funding sources
