Please find here the NC Budget’s $89,665,789 comprehensive list of investments in Union County.

This budget is a good budget. In fact, this budget is historic and transformative for North Carolina. This budget is paying today for our children’s tomorrow – not our children’s future paying for our today.

The Union County investments in North Carolina’s budget acknowledge the work and needs of many individuals serving our community. The funds provide grants for community services, critical water infrastructure support, public safety and education. It’s our honor to serve those serving our community at the ground level. This support will directly enhance the already great quality of life Union County residents enjoy.
