Broomfield Arts, Culture, and Science (ACS) Funding Program
The Broomfield City Council authorizes funds in the City budget to support arts, culture and science programs offered to the community. The Broomfield Cultural Council (BCC) reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the City Council.  Funding decisions are based on benefits to the Broomfield community, consistent with the City’s cultural master plan, Creative Broomfield 2015.

Applications proposing programs to be presented in Broomfield County will be accepted. Resident applicant organizations will receive priority consideration.  Innovative programs that address an unmet arts, science or cultural niche are encouraged. Funding requests for general operations, capital campaigns, individuals, and trip or event sponsorships will not be considered due to limited ACS funding.

Check out eligibility and funding information for the SCFD. The Broomfield Cultural Council will look with favor on requests from organizations that receive less than half of their total funding from all SCFD sources in addition to evidence of responsible stewardship. Diversification of funding is critical.

All applicants need to thoroughly explain how the organization or project will benefit the City and County of Broomfield.  Applicants also need to demonstrate and measure how they are reaching Broomfield citizens with their project/programs. Since the Cultural Council has new members each year, applicants should thoroughly explain the organization history and impact in Broomfield.

The 2016 Broomfield County SCFD grant application deadline is Friday, April 1, 2016 at 4 p.m. For information about the next grant cycle, see scfd.org.
