Tier II organizations include regional organizations offering excellence in science and culture. Tier II organizations receive 22% of SCFD funds. To qualify for Tier II, organizations must meet the following:

  • Regional Impact Requirement, proving at least 15% of Colorado attendance comes from outside organization’s home county

By statute, Tier II organizations receive funding based on three factors:

  1. Qualifying annual income
