New Process for Nonprofit Grant Funding

Posted on 11/04/19

In an effort to allow more nonprofit organizations in Union County a chance to secure funding from Union County Government, the County’s Budget team has implemented a new application and review process.

The application process is a way to ensure transparency and fairness in allocation of funds for nonprofits and community partners. Union County utilizes funds for Community Partners Grants to partner with local nonprofit organizations that deliver services that align with County’s strategic objectives.

All nonprofit organizations are invited to apply for funding. The application process is open from November 4, 2019 through January, 17, 2020. Two components of the application, which can be found by clicking here, must be submitted in person or via email to Budget Analyst Adrienne Rorie by January 17, 2020. There will be a panel reviewing submitted applications and recommending funding for selected organizations.

The Board of County Commissioners will review recommendations and give final approval on appropriated funding. Funding for support of nonprofit organizations is limited and subject to budget availability. Funding is not committed or guaranteed by the application process.

Union County Budget staff members will host an information session to review the process and answer questions on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 1:00 PM in the Board Room on the first floor of the Government Center.

Questions should be emailed to Adrienne Rorie at
