Purpose of Revenue Sharing Funds: A Public Benefit
The Placer County Board of Supervisors has actively promoted revenue sharing funding as a means to provide limited financial support for local events, fundraising, programs, supplies, improvements, and equipment needed to help non-profit and community based organizations. 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 therefore a benefit results to the County.
Revenue Sharing Requests in Supervisorial Districts 1 & 5
Rather than requesting that funds from the revenue sharing program be applied to specific community organizations, the District 1 & 5 Supervisors have requested that in this fiscal year, all allocated funding for Districts 1 & 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 and 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-889-4010.
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 by clicking this link: Unfunded Requests
