Funding Opportunities

The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County has several options to help agencies obtain support that help us meet our mission "to improve the quality of life for all children in St. Lucie County.” The funding opportunities range from small projects to large initiatives. Funding is based on research and data indicating where and what needs exist for children and families in the county. CSC’s governing board also plays an important role in this process. CSC closely monitors programs for performance and measurable results based on best practices. As a county taxpayer-funded entity, we do not fund programs outside of St. Lucie County.

Funding Inquiry Form

Applicants are required to meet with staff prior to submitting an application to discuss new funding proposals or requests for one-time funding. To contact the CSC Team, please submit a Funding Inquiry Form and someone will contact you to discuss your proposal. No application will be considered without prior discussion with staff.

Program and Funding Policies

Please read our Program and Funding Policies for more information. Applications for all funding types are located on our grants management platform we call The Hub. You must be a registered user to submit new applications.

Council Decision

For funding requests that require Council decision, completed applications must be received at least two weeks prior to the next scheduled Council meeting to be considered for funding. Council Meetings are typically held the second Thursday of each month. The month of September is an exception. Click here to view the Council Meeting schedule.
