County seeks less money from state for nonprofits

Published 12:28 am Saturday, February 26, 2011

Warren County supervisors’ requests for legislative approval to fund eight nonprofit organizations are down about 61 percent from last year.

A list approved unanimously by the five county supervisors totals $40,050 in public funding for the charities. Last year, the same groups were approved for $103,500.

All eight must be renewed annually to continue public subsidies. Five additional groups not included in Friday’s renewal process bring the county’s charitable service organization budget for 2010-11 to $194,380. Groups OK’d Friday are expected to be rolled into a bill to the Legislature by the local delegation.
