The Steamboat Springs Arts Council’s 2018 Re-Granting program will grant funds in the area of Arts and Culture.

Any organization currently receiving program or operational support from the City of Steamboat Springs will not be eligible. Recipients of Arts & Culture Coalition grants from the City of Steamboat Springs are not eligible. An impartial committee made up of members of the Board of Directors of Arts Council and representatives of the business, civic and arts community will review all proposals.
GRANTS WILL BE AWARDED IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
- Organization Development
- Project Development/Organization
- Project Development/Individual
- Individual Artist Fellowship
- Artist Honorarium
The Re-Granting Program is offered to help expand the scope of cultural activities and services in Routt County. Grants are given to organizations and individuals to strengthen and improve the quality and capacity of art and cultural programming and presentation. Special focus is on arts and culture organizations who cannot apply for the Arts and Culture Coalition Grant money due to lack of 501(c)(3) status, lack of knowledge of the granting process/application timetable, or unforeseen need.
The Re-Granting Program is offered with the following goals:
- Establish new and innovative programs;
- Enhance existing programs and initiatives that add to the capacity of artists, art and cultural organizations;
- Enhance and develop artistic skills of organization leaders and/or artists;
- Creatively address a community issue or have social impact;
- Encourage cooperation/collaboration between organizations/artists.
