BRUNSWICK COUNTY — Nonprofits can now request Brunswick County funding for eligible projects through the county’s Non-Profit Community Assistance Funding.
The Brunswick County commissioners have allocated $750,000 from the county’s American Rescue Plan Act money to support programs that help residents continue to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic or provide or enhance a public purpose the county does not offer.
Submissions will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. The requests must meet the following criteria:
- Located in Brunswick County
- Provide a public purpose (as authorized by the North Carolina General Statutes)
- Support equitable outcomes and are available to all eligible county residents
- Make the best use of one-time project funds (not used for operating expenses)
- Can show the organization has the staffing and financial capabilities to implement the project
- Aids the organization in its continued recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic or addresses community challenges through improved service delivery
Additional weight will be given to projects that align with any of the five goals, focus areas, and initiatives in the county’s strategic plan.
There is no maximum or minimum amount of funding an organization can request.
Brunswick County will also hold an informal virtual information workshop via Zoom on March 31 at 1 p.m. for interested nonprofits. Registration can be found here. Groups can also direct their questions to Grant Manager Jackson Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
