[ARCHIVED] Chapel Hill, Carrboro Bring Racial Equity Focus to Human Services Funding Program

IG Human Services web

Consistent with their commitment to equity and inclusion, the Towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro are taking steps together to center racial equity in the Human Services Funding Program. The Human Services Program provides funding to non-profit agencies that offer vital services to residents.

Over the course of the next year, the Towns will conduct a comprehensive racial-equity analysis of the program by:

  • Training staff, Human Services advisory board members, and agency partners on racial equity, drawing on resources from the Government Alliance on Race and Equity, non-profit partners, and other sources.
  • Conducting a Racial Equity Assessment of the Human Services Funding Program, which will include engagement with non-profit partners and the people they serve.
  • Based on what is learned through the racial equity assessment, updating the program’s strategic results framework and funding application.

“We recognize the need to deeply examine our program and services with a racial equity lens and are excited to partner with the Town of Carrboro to evaluate and amend one of our key funding programs - Human Services,” says Town of Chapel Hill Interim Director of Housing and Community Sarah Vinas.

The Towns will release the application for fiscal year 2023 on Oct. 22, 2021; applications are due no later than Jan. 13, 2022.
