Sonoma County regularly contracts with community based organizations in order to provide services for residents of the County. These services are generally contracted through responsible County Departments, and abide by the contracting principles (available below) that were approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 2, 2019. We encourage organizations to work with Departments through this process, but recognize that at times organizations may wish to bring requests to support their services directly to the Board of Supervisors.
In order to increase transparency and fairness in the budgeting process, the County of Sonoma is requiring any organizations that will be requesting funding at budget hearings to fill out the budget request form, which is linked below. Forms must be submitted by April 15, 2019 in order to be considered for funding in the FY 2019-20 Budget. Please note that this form does not replace the process to apply for Community Investment Program Grants, which can be found on the link to the left on this page. Businesses seeking to do business with the County should follow the link at the top of the page.
