Each year, the Board of Directors establishes a program of work based on the postive impact it has on our communities. This process begins with filling out the relatively simple, six page Annual Grant Application. Each year the updated Annual Grant Application is available on December 1st. Please note that with the Annual Grant process, our United Way provides funding for specific programs; financial resources are not allocated for general operations. The Annual Grant Application is due at the United Way office on February 1st. In the middle of March applicants meet with our local United Way Citizens Review Panel to discuss their grant application. Organizations are notified of their funding status by April 1st. Annual Allocation Application (fillable pdf) or Annual Allocation Application in word Grants are paid in equal, quarterly installments, with the first payment received in April; second payment, July; third payment, October; last payment, January.
