Grant Application Process Underway

2015-2016 Community Investment Grant Applications Now Available

The application process for the 2015-2016 Community Investment Grants is now open. 
 
 
Nonprofits interested in applying for funding through United Way of Williamson County will first need to submit a Letter of Intent Outline for each program or project seeking funding. 
 
Required components and submission guidelines for the Letter of Intent Outline are detailed in the application documents. The Letter of Intent Outline deadline is Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 5 p.m. 
 
The United Way of Williamson County Community Impact Council will review the Letters of Intent during the month of February and will announce the applicants advancing on to the full Community Investment Grant application on February 25, 2015.
 
By focusing on the building blocks of a good life – education, financial stability, health and basic needs – we believe that together, we can change lives and positively impact the Williamson County community.  
 
Community Investment Grants are one of a number of ways in which United Way of Williamson County partners with the community to remove obstacles and create pathways for a better life in order to prevent problems from happening in the first place. 
 
The grant review committee under the leadership of the Board of Directors will use our established Community Impact Goals to guide funding decisions throughout the allocation process. Funding requests must align with one of the Impact Goals and must serve the residents of Williamson County. Interested nonprofits should carefully review the application documents to determine whether a program or project will advance our collective efforts in one of the Community Impact Goals.
 
Community Impact Goals in the areas of education, income, health and basic needs can be found in Section B of the Letter of Intent Directions and will serve as the guiding principles throughout the 2015-2016 Community Investment Grant funding process. 
 
To assist nonprofits in the application process, two LOI training sessions will be offered at United Way of Williamson County offices. Attendance is optional and not required for LOI submission.
