Family Advisory Board (FAB) is Seeking Applications for Funding

The Gaston County Family Advisory Board (FAB) is seeking applications for funding in the fiscal year 2020-2021. The FAB will only consider proposals from charitable organizations with a 501(c)3 status. The maximum funding request and award amount is $10,000. Funds can only be used for prevention-based programs that address one of the following criteria:

  • Promote healthy families
  • Promote responsible and civic behavior
  • Encourage school success through increased attendance and academic achievement

Programs must also be outcome-based and measurable. The FAB does not consider grants to private schools, churches, or other religious organizations. Programs that receive County funding from another source are not eligible to apply.
