Play associated audio

Non-profits in Loudoun County are being encouraged to attend a meeting tonight if they're looking for funding.

Groups interested in funding must provide services to residents in the county in one of several categories including health, arts, culture and economic development. They also must be a tax exempt, non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

After applying for the funding, the board of supervisors will decide who gets what when they go through the budget process for fiscal year 2011. The meeting starts at 10 a.m. at the Loudoun County Government Center in Leesburg.
