The Community Impact Fund

United Way’s Community Impact Fund is changing lives! Every two years, our grant funding process opens for programs working to improve Education, Income or Health to apply for two years of funding. The review process is thorough, volunteer-led, and competitive. All programs receive a site visit by a team of community volunteers and are scrutinized by the Community Impact Committee and the Board of Directors. All decisions are made on a local level. United Way assures that every program that receives a Community Impact Fund grant is making significant, measurable change in our community!

Please note that UWCC is transitioning to building blocks focused on Education, Income and Health for the 2-year funding cycle beginning FY 2017 (July 1, 2016). The Community Basics building block will be absorbed into these three areas.

Programs currently receiving funds from Community Basics have been made aware of this transition. All current contracts will be honored through the end of the funding cycle.

All programs are able to apply for funds under Education, Income or Health during the upcoming funding cycle. The choice of whether to apply for Community Impact Fund grants, and which Building Block area to apply under, is determined by individual programs.
