Family Advisory Board is Seeking Applications for Funding

The Gaston Family Advisory Board (FAB) is seeking applications for funding through the Gaston County Prevention-Based Services. The FAB will only consider proposals from charitable organizations with a 501(c)3 status. The ceiling for funding requests is $10,000 and can only be used for prevention-based programming. Programs must address one of the following criteria in order to be considered for funding: promote healthy families, promote responsible and civic behavior, and/or encourage school success through increased attendance and academic achievement. Programs must also be outcome based and measurable.

The FAB does not consider grants to private schools, churches, or other religious organizations. Programs that receive on-going County funding from another source or provide support to court-involved youth are not eligible to apply for FAB funds.

There will be a mandatory information meeting on January 24th, 2019 at 12:00 PM, location 128 West Main Ave., Gastonia, NC 28053 on the third floor of the Gaston County Administration Building.

Proposals must be submitted by 5:00 PM on Friday, February 8th, 2019. Mail or deliver 12 copies of proposals to: Taylor Drury, Gaston County, P.O. Box 1578, 128 West Main Ave., Gastonia, NC 28053-1578.
