United Way accepting grant applications

United Way of Onslow County is accepting grant applications from applicable health and human service programs.

Their Community Investment Grant Request for Proposals (RFP) Application is open until 5 p.m. April 27, according to a press release. United Way says they hope to help identify underlying conditions in the community to bring people and organizations together for a collective impact by being a “critical community convener.”

“United Way is moving toward facilitating a shared community vision and coordinating action across a diverse coalition, along with mutual accountability, sustained effort and measured results,” according to the release.

The organization is working to prioritize the key challenges within the community, and the release states funding requests are being accepted for a one-year grant cycle.

Less money was raised during this year’s campaign, according to the release, and as such the process is “extremely competitive.” With this in mind, applicants are encouraged to make requests for critical program service needs.
