SCFD Cultural Council

Boulder County Cultural Council (BCCC)

Develops recommendations to Boulder County Commissioners regarding the yearly distribution plan for the county’s portion of the Metropolitan Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) Tier III sales tax.

Meetings are being held virtually on Zoom. This year, instead of council interviews, some organizations will receive questions with a chance to respond by email, if the council determines an answer is necessary to the grant application.
