Strategic Partnership Grant funding is awarded to nonprofit organizations working toward outcomes in alignment with County Commissioner-led priorities and goals. The Committee generally meets the first Thursday of every month from 1-2:30 p.m., with special meetings as needed. More information is available at BuncombeCounty.org/Grants.
