United Way Initiates 2018 Community Impact Grant Program

7 February 2018 Community News

The Community Impact Grant Program, launched in 2015 by the United Way of Front Royal-Warren County, is now accepting letters of intent for its 2018-2019 program. Its focus is prioritizing the health and human care needs of the community, and this year it has updated focus areas to better reflect the needs of Warren County residents as evidenced in the Community Needs Assessment (released in April 2017) and The ALICE Report (released in July 2017).

Areas of focus for the 2018-2019 grant year are:

Income Stability
– Job skills training
– Access to quality, affordable housing for seniors and families
– Access to shelter for homeless
– Access to quality, affordable child care
– Providing early childhood learning opportunities
– After school and mentoring programs for at-risk youth
– Access to affordable critical healthcare services
– Reducing substance abuse
– Addressing child abuse and domestic violence

This is the first year that United Way will open the application process to all 501(c) 3 agencies serving Warren County. Interested agencies must submit a letter of intent by February 28, 2018 to be considered for this year’s grant program. The letter should demonstrate how the agency or program will address at least one of the identified areas of focus.

Program grant reviews are undertaken each year by the United Way of Front Royal-Warren County Board of Directors. For additional information or questions, participants have been encouraged to contact the United Way at info@frontroyalunitedway.org or by phone at 540-635-3636.
