Outside Agency Funding

Outside agencies may apply for funding in several ways: General Fund support, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) support, Human Services Agency support or Arts Commission Support. All organizations may apply for HUD funds, however, only one application is allowed for either General Fund, Human Services or Arts Commission support.

Fiscal Year 2021 UPDATE:
Over the past several years, the Management and Budget Division, together with the Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) and the Roanoke Arts Commission (RAC) have conducted a budget kickoff session for any non-profit organization that intends to request funding in the upcoming budget cycle through one of these two committees.  However, for the upcoming start to the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 budget season, there will be a slightly different approach by each committee.

For non-profit arts and cultural organizations who plan to request funding from the City through the Arts Commission (RAC), attendance at a December 6 workshop is required.  The workshop will take place at 9:00 a.m. in the EOC Conference Room (Room 159) on the first floor of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building at 215 Church Avenue, S.W.  Contact Arts and Cultural Coordinator Douglas Jackson for more information.  He can be reached by phone at 540-853-5652 or by email at Douglas.jackson@roanokeva.govAs in past years, funding applications will be submitted on-line through the United Way's e-cImpact system with this budget year's deadline being noon, on Thursday, January 30.

For non-profit human services organizations who plan to request funding from the City through the Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB), there will be no mandatory workshop this year.  Organizations who have requested funding in the past from this Committee will be notified by letter of the steps and timelines involved.  For those human services organizations who have not requested funding in the past, but are considering doing so for Fiscal Year 2020-2021, please contact Teresa McDaniel in Human/Social Services.  She can be reached by phone at 540-853-2372 or by email at Teresa.mcdaniel@roanokeva.govAs in past years, funding applications will be submitted on-line through the United Way's e-cImpact system with this budget year's deadline being noon, on Thursday, January 30.
