The BOCC DAF supports a valid public purpose by funding community organizations, primarily 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, in Grand County with missions that provide, promote or enhance Grand County citizens’ access to basic “primary” needs in the areas of health and human services and education. The BOCC DAF may select and fund community organizations serving non-basic “secondary” needs within the community, but only after the basic primary needs are funded.
  3. Applicants for funding should be tax exempt under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) and 170 (b)(1)(A)(i.V.I.) of the Internal Revenue Code. Other not-for-profit entities or groups demonstrating a need will also be considered.

Please submit Final Reports as separate documentation. 2016 Final Reports are due on or before August 31, 2016 to be eligible for the 2017 cycle.

Additional time to make funding decisions may be taken by the committee.
