2023-2025 Grassroots Funding Opportunity

Thank you for your interest in the 2023-2025 Grassroots Funding Opportunity! The Grassroots Funding Opportunity began in 2021 as a pilot funding program in recognition of longstanding systemic disparities that have resulted in a lack of investment in underserved communities. We know more kids could be better served by investing in smaller, community-based organizations that are best positioned to deliver meaningful and innovative services to their communities and this is why our Board of Directors have approved a second cycle and doubled the budget, allocating up to $4 million for this funding opportunity.

Below, you will find detailed information about the 2023-2025 Grassroots Funding Opportunity, including criteria to apply, what types of services we fund, important dates and deadlines, and more. If you have questions throughout the process, please direct them to

The 2023-2026 Core Funding Opportunity is now closed.

The Core Funding Opportunity was the first funding mechanism created by the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund to support local organizations that provide mental and behavioral health services to kids and families in St. Louis County.

Core funding supports many different services, from substance use treatment to transitional housing to therapeutic counseling, and more. Core partners are organizations that use proven methods and have strong track records of yielding positive impact on kids’ lives.

Our Core partners have the capacity to provide services and are supported by CSF through a standardized unit rate model of funding.
