Welcome to the Mecklenburg County ABC Board's FY 2021 Community Health & Wellness Grant Program application process. Carefully read these FAQs, the Guidelines and Terms, and the information provided on the Community Outreach menu web pages at www.meckabc.com to check the applicant organization’s eligibility.
As a reminder:
New this year, there are four (4) different grant programs under the umbrella Community Health & Wellness Grant Program of the ABC Board: Small Grant Program; Renewal Grant Program; Annual Grant Program; and Multi-Year Grant Program.
It is incumbent upon the applicant organization to carefully read the grant eligibility Guidelines and Termsapplicable to the grant program being applied to for information about that specific program. Although some requirements are the same, there are significant differences between the grant programs.
Funding is only available for education, prevention, treatment and/or research of alcohol and/or substance abuse (substance use disorder) projects/programs per Chapter 18B-805 (h) of the North Carolina General Statutes. These guidelines will be strictly followed.
The grant cycle will OPEN on Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. EST.
The grant cycle deadline has been extended and will CLOSE on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Grants will be made only to Mecklenburg County non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organizations exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or to governmental entities such as the State of North Carolina and its agencies, municipal corporations and political subdivisions of the State. A fiscal agent/sponsorship arrangement will not be considered.
Funding is restricted to organizations with 501(c)(3) determination letters located in and serving residents of Mecklenburg County.
Applicant organizations must demonstrate: (1) a strong case for support; (2) alignment with the grant funding focus; and (3) ability to deliver results for the project/program for which they are applying.
Please be thorough, but succinct in writing responses. Using up the character counts to respond to an application question is NOT as important as thoughtfully responding to a question with clear and concise statements.
