Open Positions On The Steamboat Springs Education Fund Board

Open Positions On The Steamboat Springs Education Fund Board

The Steamboat Springs Education Fund (SSEF) Board is accepting applications for two open positions.  The SSEF Board is responsible for awarding grants from the proceeds of the half-cent sales and use tax  assessed by the City of Steamboat Springs, as approved by City voters. The proceeds are distributed  through an annual grant request and award cycle. Grant recipients are primarily public schools in Routt  County but can include non-profits whose missions directly benefit public school students through  school-based programming. Board members also review grantee accountability reports to ensure  taxpayer dollars are being spent as granted and are being used to enhance academic accomplishment.  The primary duties of the board are oversight, the review of grant applications, accountability, and the  distribution of the funds. 

Applicants must live in Routt County but are not required to have children in any public school. SSEF  directors are asked to commit to three-year terms and attend six to eight meetings per year. There are  generally two meetings in the fall, three or four between January and May, and one or two board  workshops during the summer. These are volunteer positions. There is no fundraising requirement or  expectation of financial contribution. There is no age minimum or maximum. 

More information regarding the SSEF is available on our website. Please direct questions to
