Community Grant

Town of Mt. Crested Butte Community Service Grant 

The town of Mt. Crested Butte is updating the process by which local non-profits/government organizations can request funding from Town Council. To provide consistency throughout the Town’s budgeting cycle, we’ve created the Community Service Grant that can be applied for annually each fall.

Private community organizations may also apply for this grant, but they will need to work through a local non-profit or government agency to serve as the sponsor and administrative unit for managing the contract with the Town. 

The Community Service Grant Application is not to be confused with the Admissions Tax Grant—whose purpose is to provide support for marketing, fundraising, and events—the Community Service Grant can be utilized for operational business expenses.

This year, the application due date is September 15, 2023 at 5pm. 

To apply for the Community Service Grant, please email your completed application to Tiffany O’Connell, Town Clerk, toconnell@mtcb.colorado.gov, or drop it off at the Mt. Crested Butte Town Hall, 911 Gothic Road during office hours. Tiffany is also available to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Community Grant process and can be reached by email or by calling (970) 389-6632, ext. 2.
