Non-profit organizations and/or community-based organizations may submit funding requests for local events, fundraising, programs, supplies, improvements, and equipment needed through Placer County's Revenue Sharing Program. Funding is not provided for staffing costs or core budget needs. Individual members of the Board of Supervisors may nominate organizations that provide a community service and serve a beneficial community purpose through various public activities for varying amounts of revenue sharing funds. Typically these requests are for relatively small amounts of funding such as $100, $500 or $1,000. Such requests for funds must be placed on the Board’s public meeting agenda and be approved by the entire Board of Supervisors.
In approving the revenue sharing contributions on the Board’s agenda, the Placer County Board of Supervisors finds that each and every approved contribution serves a public purpose by promoting the general welfare of the County and its inhabitants and therefore a benefit results to the County.
Request Revenue Sharing Funds
Requests for Revenue Sharing funds must be made in writing on your organization's letterhead if possible, include a detailed description of how funds would be used and include the signature of the appropriate representative for your organization. The request must be accompanied by a completed application (PDF) form as well as completed W9 (PDF) and 590 (PDF) tax forms. Requests from non-profit organizations must also include a Tax Identification Number.
Requests must be submitted to the Board of Supervisors Office via US Mail or via email.

Revenue Sharing Requests in Supervisorial District 5
Rather than requesting that funds from the revenue sharing program be applied to specific community organizations, the District 5 Supervisor has requested that in this fiscal year, all allocated funding for District 5 revenue sharing be redirected to the Placer County Health and Human Services Department for specified program use.
Review of Eligible Requests from Local Community Organizations, Non-Profits & the Public
Compliance with regulations on the permissible use of public funds and the availability of resources are factors that contribute to the District Supervisors decision whether or not to make a recommendation for approval. It is, however, required that a majority vote of the Placer County Board of Supervisors approve any Revenue Sharing requests.
Fiscal Year Tracking/Revenue Sharing Funds
The County Executive Office maintains a fiscal-year database for revenue sharing funds allocated by Supervisorial District. The database is updated after each Board meeting and is available by contacting the Board of Supervisors office.
The Board of Supervisors receives numerous revenue sharing requests during the fiscal year. All eligible revenue sharing requests received are reviewed by the District Supervisor. However, not all requests are recommended for funding. Board members have the discretion to recommend requests for approval. Unfunded request applications are kept on file for 1 year in the Board of Supervisors’ office and are available online.
