Jan. 14, 2015 – The Eagle County Board of Commissioners will award approximately $583,500 to 49 local agencies and non-profits through its competitive community grant program for 2015. The funds are a combination of county dollars and Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) received from the federal government.

In total, 88 requests amounting to approximately $2 million were received. Applications were evaluated based on their alignment with the commissioners’ strategic priorities: social investment, economic vitality, sustainable communities and environmental stewardship.

Of the 49 agencies awarded grants, 16 support programs and services in the Roaring Fork Valley. A complete list of funded organizations and amounts can be found at

This year’s allocations to outside agencies included a direct funding component in addition to the competitive grant process. Initiatives that directly support critical services or programs the county would otherwise provide internally were funded at approximately $1.47 million.

Administration of the community grant program in future years will depend on available funds. For more information, contact Interim County Manager Rachel Oys at 970-328-8858 or at
