  • Boards and Commissions: County Cultural Council



    There are seven county cultural council districts in the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) organization. Each is made up of volunteer appointees who manage the SCFD Tier III grant application process for their respective counties. Council members should adhere to the concepts of stewardship of public funds and seek to create a fair, ethical, respectful, open and objective evaluation process through which these public funds are distributed. Councils make funding recommendations to the Jefferson County Commissioners as to how SCFD Tier III funds should be allocated.


    • Develops and revise county grant guidelines, criteria and assessment protocol.

    • Develops funding recommendations to submit to the Board of County Commissioners.
    • Refers eligibility and district policy questions to the SCFD office.
    • Evaluate the grant making process, council procedures and implement improvements.
