The CCFP is the competitive grant process for funding human services offered by nonprofit agencies within Fairfax County. Over $10 million dollars was recommended for services in the current funding cycle, subject to the Board of Supervisors and successful performance. On May 1, 2012, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to work with the CCFAC and representatives from the nonprofit community to review the current CCFP funding framework, practices, and procedures to ensure the program supports strategic human services outcomes and leverages community resources for maximum collective impact on communities and those individuals and families most at risk.   

These sessions are for the purpose of gathering information from the public. County staff will give a brief presentation outlining the current status of the CCFP. Afterward, attendees will be divided into small groups to discuss their ideas and responses to the following questions:

  • What are the housing, community development, and human services needs of the County?
  • How well is the County meeting these needs?
  • What is your understanding of the purpose and process of the CCFP in meeting the County’s needs?
  • What are the areas of the CCFP process that you think are working?
  • What areas of the process can be improved?
  • What do you think is the most effective way to distribute funds to nonprofit agencies in the future to address community needs?

Information from these community input sessions will be used by the Steering Committee to craft recommendations for the Board of Supervisors in spring 2013.
