Human Services

Every year the Town of Carrboro, the Town of Chapel Hill, and Orange County invite program funding requests from nonprofits who support the delivery of vital community services.  There is one common funding application between the jurisdictions.  If a nonprofit is applying for funding in Carrboro, their application is reviewed by the Carrboro Human Services Advisory Commission.
