United Way’s Community Building Mini-Grants Program is the only local resource to promote civic involvement and bring about positive change at the grassroots all-volunteer level. The goal of the Mini-Grants Program is to encourage volunteerism and creative thinking as a viable way to strengthen all aspects of the community. The program encourages community building by supporting citizens to come together, form and build relationships, and address a need or issue of concern. Groups must align their project proposals with a United Way impact area: Health, Education, Financial Stability, or Basic Needs. For this cycle of Mini-Grants, United Way is seeking projects that will creatively address some of issues created by COVID-19.
The program provides financial and technical support to all-volunteer groups working to strengthen the community through projects that address locally identified concerns or issues.
Projects must be in the following focus areas:
