Other Outside Agency Grants
Through its Other Outside Agency grants process, the City of Raleigh provides funding to non-profit organizations
for programs and projects that fall outside the parameters of the City’s established Arts, Human Services or
Community Enhancement grant programs. Fifteen agencies applied for other outside agency funding in FY17
totaling $2,235,316. Of the fifteen agencies applying in FY17, twelve were funded at a total of $1,116,858. An
Other Outside Agency Reserve of $60,096 is included in the FY17 budget. Total Other Outside Agency grant
funding, with the reserve, is $1,176,954.
The following recurring agencies are funded at the same level in FY17 as they were funded in FY16: Chamber of
Commerce, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, Hillsborough Street Community Services Corporation, DHIC, Catholic
Charities, Passage Home and Transitions LifeCare. Transitions LifeCare is in the second year of four-year capital
grant allocation. Their application was received and they were awarded funding with the FY16 budget process.
Their final year of funding will occur in FY19.

Two agencies receiving continued support from the City, African American Cultural Festival (AACF) and Southeast
Raleigh Assembly (SERA), remain part of a funding strategy that puts them in compliance with the City’s 25%
maximum grant funding policy by FY18. Policy adopted in January 2015 states the
maximum level of city grant
funding to any agency is no more than 25% of the agency’s total actual operating expenses for last completed
The funding strategy for AACF and SERA began with the FY16 budget and continues over a three-
year period by spreading the “percentage gap” in excess of the policy evenly across the three years. Funding
allocated to these agencies in FY17 is reflective of this strategy. The table illustrates the maximum percentage of
each agency’s prior fiscal year actual expenditures that may be awarded as a grant from the City in FY16, FY17
