Macon County Community Funding Pool

The Macon County Community Funding Pool (CFP) 2019 application cycle will be later than usual. Please watch the media and this website for the application form, deadline, instructions, and CFP Task Force contact information.

Macon County non-profit organizations may apply for county funds through the Macon County Community Funding Pool (CFP). The funding cycle is based on the County's fiscal year and applications are due by July 30 of each year for possible funding allocation.

Application forms and instructions are available below or may be picked up at the Macon County Public Library on Siler Road in Franklin, the Hudson Library on Main Street in Highlands, and the Nantahala Public Library on Nantahala School Road.

Organizations applying for CFP funds must provide financial statements such as budgets and federal tax-exempt reports, mission statement, organization goals and objectives and program descriptions, and board/staff roster. First-time applicants must contact Karen Wallace, (828) 524-3600 or Bobbie Contino (828) 524-2787 to discuss their proposal. Groups not incorporated as non-profits may enlist an established non-profit to serve as their fiscal agent. Collaborative agency proposals are encouraged to leverage limited funding and share resources.

The Community Funding Pool was established to help the Macon County Board of Commissioners allocate tax-generated funds to local non-profits in a fair and efficient way. The CFP Task Force is composed of citizens chosen by the Board of Commissioners to consider applications and make recommendations to the Board, who make final funding decisions. The Community Funding Pool is a separate entity from the Macon County Community Foundation.

For information contact CFP secretary Bobbie Contino, (828) 524-2787 or email.
