Douglas County Cultural Council (DCCC) members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners by District.  Members serve the diverse citizenry of Douglas County by annually reviewing applications from Tier III organizations requesting Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) funds. The DCCC receives grant applications from eligible arts, science, and cultural organizations and then makes funding recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners, which is then submitted to the SCFD Board of Directors for funding approval. The distribution of the Douglas County portion of the SCFD region wide cultural sales tax provides for the advancement and preservation of visual arts, performing arts, cultural history, natural history, and natural sciences.  For additional information, please contact Kim Smith at 303-660-7347 or
