Each year, the Lee County Board of County Commissions allocates funding to be awarded to qualified non-profit organizations to address human service needs in the community. In prior years, the process has started in late spring/early summer (May/June). This year, the process has been delayed as we are reviewing and evaluating ways to improve and expand the funding opportunities. We anticipate that a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will be issued soon. Please check back for updates.
