Community Service Grants
County Seeks Nonprofits for Community Grants
Mecklenburg County is holding an information for session for nonprofits to learn how the County's Request for Proposal (RFP) system works and how they can get involved.

The County is looking for vendors who can provide services in the following areas:

  • Improved high school graduation rates
  • Train and place unemployed workers
  • Prevent health risks and diseases
  • Promote financial self-sufficiency

On March 1, 2011, staff will be on hand to explain the County's RFP process. The meeting is at 10 a.m. in Room 267 of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 East Fourth Street.
The grant award funding period is for Fiscal Year 2012, from July 2011 to June 2012. Priority consideration will be given to services with proven success strategies.

On March 1, RFP documents will be available online at . For questions, e-mail

The four target areas of this competitive RFP process reflect some of the specific areas endorsed by the Board of County Commissioners in January as most critical to improve the quality of life for residents. County Manager Harry L. Jones Sr. recommended these critical success factors, which were identified through a statistical survey of Mecklenburg County residents, a community forum, employee input and analysis of the County’s progress toward desired results. Mecklenburg County government is committed to making strategic investments in the community’s future. These identified critical success factors will help bring about renewal for the community and its residents in the aftermath of the recession.

Any nonprofit organization serving Mecklenburg County is eligible to submit a proposal; however consideration will be given only to proposals that clearly contribute to one of the four target areas.
