Lincoln County is pleased to announce continuation of its competitive allocation program to help fund private nonprofit social service agencies within the County for the fiscal year 2017-2018. An agency qualifies to make an application if it is a 501(c)(3) private, nonprofit social agency providing direct services to either the general population of Lincoln County or targeted segments of that population within the county.
Grant allocations can be made for on-going operational expenses, equipment purchases, capital improvements and associated expenses, service improvements or expansions or any combination of the above. Allocations will be awarded by the Board of Commissioners based on the recommendations of a Review Committee appointed by the Board.
Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
