“The board is pleased with the projects that were funded last year and we look forward to reviewing this year’s applicants,” PCF Board President Chad Renfro said. “The deadline was extended this year to make up for the delayed announcement. There will be no extensions granted so please get your applications in as soon as possible.”

PCF seeks to make a positive difference in the future of Pawhuska by empowering individuals, groups and the organizations of Pawhuska to strengthen and sustain the economic base, environment and quality of life in the area.
