    Hello Sunshine, while we don’t maintain a summary that is responsive to this request, the majority of this information is publicly available on our website at buncombecounty.org/transparency.

     

    Click on the Budget Explorer dashboard and go to page 7 which is the Grants Fund expenditures and revenue page. You can explore current grant revenues and operating expenses.
    Similarly on the Open Checkbook dashboard, under the Fund dropdown, you can navigate to the grants project fund and see expenditures. The public can email questions about the open checkbook transactions by providing the transaction ID, date, cost center, and supplier and emailing [email protected] Thanks,
