Nonprofit organizations requesting grant funding from the City of Greensboro for the 2018-19 fiscal year have until December 22 to apply to the Community Partners Board. Download an application and read more about the grant requirements online.

The Budget and Evaluation Department will host a kickoff session to explain about the funding process at 10 am Thursday, November 9, at the Plaza Level Conference Room of the Melvin Municipal Office Building, 300 W. Washington St. The department will also hold a technical workshop for organizations that need assistance completing the application at 11 am Tuesday, December 5, also at the Plaza Level Conference Room.

To qualify for funding, an organization must be a federal 501 (c)(3) that is in “current-active” status with the NC Secretary of State and must submit its most recent IRS 990 form with the application.

After funding requests are vetted by the Community Partners Board, a group of nine residents appointed by City Council, and the city manager, City Council members will determine which nonprofits are funded when they adopt the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018-19 budget in June 2018. In FY 2017-18, 18 nonprofits were allocated approximately $1 million under this process.
