Harnett County 2020-21 Nonprofit Funding Application Period Opens Feb. 1

Applications must be submitted by February 28 to be considered

Harnett County will begin accepting applications on February 1 from nonprofit agencies that wish to request funding as part of the County’s budget for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. The Harnett County Board of Commissioners has appointed a Nonprofit Funding Committee comprised of citizens, elected officials and staff to review applications and make a recommendation to the Board for funding as part of the annual budget process.

Information on eligibility for nonprofit funding, procedures and funding priorities can be found at http://www.harnett.org/nonprofit-agency-information.asp, as well as on the main page of the County’s website at www.harnett.org, along with a fillable application. Paper applications are also available from the Harnett County Manager’s Office at 420 McKinney Parkway, Lillington, and from the Harnett County Public Library at 601 S. Main St., Lillington.

Completed applications may be hand-delivered to the County Manager’s Office or mailed to the Harnett County Manager’s Office at P.O. Box 759, Lillington, NC 27546. Applications must be received or postmarked by Wednesday, February 28, 2020, at 5 p.m. Applications that are not received or postmarked by the deadline will not be considered for funding.

Applicants who received funding in 2019-2020 are also required to submit a financial report along with their application for funding, and must submit an annual program performance report that details how County funds were used by July 31, 2020. Failure to comply with the Harnett County Policy for Funding Nonprofits may result in suspension of current funding and/or elimination from consideration for future funding.
