The City of Concord grants funding to non-governmental, or "External Agencies," that contribute to the City's cultural, social, and economic vitality. External Agency funding requests are considered by the City Council under the auspices of the Public Purpose Clause of the North Carolina State Constitution (Article V, Sec. 2(7)). Further guidance by North Carolina Supreme Court case law allows the City Council to choose to fund activities that 1) are within the appropriate scope of governmental involvement and reasonably related to community needs and 2) benefit the general public, as opposed to special interests or persons.
The application process for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 External Agency funding is now CLOSED.
