Outside Agencies

Applications for Human Services/Outside Agencies' Funding

Each year, Orange County, the Town of Carrboro, and the Town of Chapel Hill invite program funding requests from nonprofit providers (outside agencies) to support delivery of vital community services. The County and Towns administer a common application with separate evaluation processes.

The FY 2022-23 Commissioner Approved Budget included funding for fifty-three (53) agencies totaling $1,854,691, an increase of $124,737 from the prior year. Additionally, the Manager Recommended budget includes $45,000 for Arts related Outside Agencies in the Visitors Bureau Fund to be administered by the Orange County Arts Commission. 

The recommeded funding of $1,854,691 equates to 1.35% of the County's General Fund expenditures, less education.

Each quarter, agencies must report their performance objectives and provide financial receipts in order to receive funding disbursements, as outlined in funding applications and Scope of Services Performance Agreement.
