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.
