The loss of Community Projects Funding (CP) would be a disaster for Fallbrook’s nonprofits who work tirelessly to improve our community. For an unincorporated area such as Fallbrook, these funds are vital.
Most county funding is locked in place by the various county departments. There is very little discretionary funding available.
While grant funding is often a long, tedious, bureaucratic process, CP funding provides immediate assistance to organizations that may have an urgent need.
The purpose of CP funds is to help nonprofits improve our schools, libraries and parks and assist with economic development and recovery.
I have witnessed firsthand the benefits of these funds on numerous local projects, including the beautification of the Mission medians, providing flower pots downtown and improvements at Beech Street Park and along the Pico Promenade.
While sales tax and other revenues are down across the county, these funds will be even more important to sustain our nonprofit organizations. As the economy worsens, the need for services increases.
