Community Impact Grants

FY21 COMMUNITY IMPACT GRANT INFO

United Way of Washington County will be accepting grant applications from agencies who were approved after submitting a Letter of Intent. FY21 Community Impact funding is focused strictly on Financial Stability and Basic Needs. Grants have transitioned to multi years with the exception of Basic Needs, which remains at one year.
 
Local health and human service agencies are encouraged to submit applications which feature programs developed in partnership with other organizations. A lead agency must be identified that would be responsible for submitting collaborative financial and program reports and be financially responsible for the program.
