General Fund Contingency Funding

The Washington County General Fund Contingency Grant Allocation was established to provide organizations operating within Washington County with funding for one-time projects or events that for various reasons were not budgeted or anticipated. The objective of this funding is to remedy or address current financial issues or situations requiring a prompt response and resolution. This funding is designed to assist organizations with projects or events that would not otherwise qualify for general fund Community Organization Funding or Hotel Rental Tax Funding.

The Board of County Commissioners may appropriate a portion of the General Fund Contingency annually to be awarded to targeted organizations meeting the funding goals. This portion of available funding may be adjusted annually at the discretion of the Board of County Commissioners.
