Grants Cycle Calendar

In order to serve Steuben County, the SCCF board has identified several broad categories in which needs exist and in which grant requests are encouraged. The SCCF is particularly interested in ideas that shed new light on Steuben County's needs and aspirations, with emphasis on providing long-term solutions.


Categories Include:

  • Arts & Culture

  • Education

  • Health

  • Environment

  • Human Services

  • Recreation

  • Community Development


These are guidelines: proposals are not limited to these areas, and grant seekers are encouraged to respond to emerging community needs. However, we place a low priority on projects where we will be the sole funder.
