State law requires funds be divided equally between the Washington County Fire and Rescue Association and local charities, and in January the Washington County Fire and Rescue Association received $422,632.65. As of today, an additional $565,554.23 will be distributed, bringing the yearly total for Fire and Rescue to $988,186.88.
In May, the Washington County Gaming Commission received 100 separate applications from 86 charitable organizations requesting a total of $1,975,857.33. After a one-day workshop in June, and public hearing in July, the Commission was able to either partially or fully fund 95 of the 100 requests. Of the 100 applications received, 19 received full funding, 76 received partial funding, and 5 were denied funding. A total of $988,186.88 was allocated to 82 of the 86 charitable organizations applying.
