County Conversation

November 8, 2018
November 7, 2018 - 'Tis the season of giving; and the chances are, families and residents across the county will be involved in a number of charitable efforts this holiday season. One way Fairfax County residents participate in giving back is through donating food and other household items to local food pantries and other non-profit organizations who specialize in providing these items to those in need. Community Capacity Builder, Dawn Hyman, joined the "County Conversation" to talk about the need for food in Fairfax County and how residents can be sure that their generous contributions can have the most impact in their community.     Related: Fairfax County Food Providers Network

October 23, 2018
Fairfax County is seeking public input in an effort to validate community priorities for committing county funds to address human services needs. The county’s Consolidated Community Funding Pool (CCFP) is an allocation of funds earmarked by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to be administered to local nonprofits and community-based organizations as an investment in programs and services that fill identified needs within communities across the county. Funding is awarded on a two-year cycle.   In preparation for the next funding cycle (FY2021-2022), beginning July 1, 2020, county staff is gathering insight and feedback from the community on the current CCFP priority areas: Housing Literacy/Educational Development/Attainment Financial Stability Health Support/Community/Social Networks Positive Behaviors and Healthy Relationships   Your feedback is important. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and opinions by taking the Community Feedback Survey online. Additionally, paper copies of the survey will be available at the county's Community Centers and Regional Libraries.   The survey will be available until Saturday, December 15, 2018. All responses will be anonymous.   Learn More: Fairfax County Consolidated Community Funding Pool
