United Way funding available for programs promoting independence

The deadline for this funding opportunity has passed.

United Way of Southeastern Connecticut is requesting proposals to partner in delivering programs that help individuals and/or families living in New London County be financially stable. As part of United Way’s partnership with selected programs, funding will be provided for one year to pursue and accomplish the goals identified by United Way. The maximum award amount is $20,000

The 2016 ALICE Report confirmed that 33 percent of households living in New London County could not afford basic needs such as housing, child care, food, health care, and transportation. As part of United Way’s commitment to addressing the challenges faced by families and individuals that struggle to make ends meet, the request for proposal is being made available to increase financial stability for those living in New London County.

Partner organizations will be expected to provide regular updates on the accomplishments of funded programs and meet periodically with United Way Community Investment Teams to discuss strategies and progress.

Any 501c3 meeting a health and human service need and located in New London County may apply, including those who do not currently receive funding from United Way, and can be for a new program or the expansion of an existing program. The agency (not the program) must have been in existence for at least three years.

Proposals are due by Friday, July 14, 2017 by 3:00 p.m.
