NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County’s Non-County Agency Funding process will open November 15, 2019, and applications will be due January 6, 2020 for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. In preparation, the county’s Finance Department will hold two training sessions for non-county agency applicants on the following dates:
The trainings will be held at the New Hanover County Government Center, 230 Government Center Drive, in the Human Resources training rooms; and they will review the funding process, completion of the funding application and reporting requirements. Non-County Agency Funding Committee members will be available at each training session as a resource. Both sessions will cover the same information, and are specifically geared toward executive directors and staff involved in completing the funding applications.
The county provides funds to eligible nonprofits and community organizations whose work helps to further the county’s strategic priorities and serve residents. Agencies can apply for funding on the county’s Finance webpage beginning November 15.
Non-profit applications are evaluated by the Non-County Agency Funding Committee, which recommends agencies and funding amounts to the Board of Commissioners. Applications submitted by economic development organizations are reviewed by the county manager and then recommended to the Board of Commissioners.
Non-county agency funding is distributed on an annual basis through an established process that ensures transparency, accountability, and consistency in the funding of non-county agencies.
