Prior to receiving funding from United Way of Williamson County, grant recipients complete a rigorous application process by a group of community volunteers. The Community Impact Committee considers various aspects of each program including alignment to our community impact goals, ability to achieve measurable results and the financial stability of each nonprofit organization. 

The investment in programs and services provided by the following nonprofit agencies will be critical to helping us advance our community impact goals in education, income, health and basic needs. These agencies are helping children and youth achieve their potential through education or helping families become more financially stable, or increase their access to health care and basic needs. They, too, are focused on providing pathways to a better life.
