Citizen Grant Review Committee

The board meets August - December each year to review grant applications.  Specific dates and times are set as needed.

About the Board
This volunteer citizen board, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, reviews all grant requests. The mission of the Citizen Grant Review Committee (CGRC) is to make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners that reflect the intention of the November 2011 ballot question, which created a special health and human services and community non-profit fund with property tax dollars. The CGRC evaluates each non-profit grant request in terms of demonstrated financial need, fiscal viability and adherence to the goals and values of Pitkin County. The CGRC makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners so that the county contributions from the Healthy Community Fund are purposeful, prudent and effective.
