Each year the Pinal County Board of Supervisors sets aside $100,000 per district to grant to local nonprofit organizations for the benefit of county residents.

County staff members review the grant applications and score them based on a rubric; rating each organization with a score of one to five in several different categories, according to a release.

This year Supervisor Kevin Cavanaugh, District 1, awarded $8,000 (8%) to education projects, $20,000 (20%) to economic development projects and $39,500 (39.5%) to projects relating to food, shelter and social services.

  • Winkelman Resource Management Center;
