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.
