Community foundation announces grant changes
The Yampa Valley Community Foundation is changing its grant cycles from four times a year to two times a year. Grant application deadlines for 2006 are March 15 and Sept. 15. By reducing the number of grant cycles, the Community Foundation hopes to award larger grants and target more specific community needs. Organizations can receive funding once per calendar year. Grant applications can be downloaded at www.yvcf.org or picked up at the Community Foundation office. The Community Foundation develops funds to support organizations and innovative programs that preserve traditions and maintain the character of the Yampa Valley. For more information, call 879-8632.
