United Way of Washington County Distributes second-year funds to local nonprofits

Observer-Reporter - Through the generosity of donors who support the United Way of Washington County’s Community Impact Fund, 20 nonprofit community partners, including Catholic Charities, are receiving $252,505 of funding for the second-year of the multi-year FY2022-2024 Community Impact Fund.

During the two-year cycle, 39 local health and human service programs are receiving funding to serve county community members. The group photo showcases individuals representing the 20 nonprofit community partners for this current grant cycle.

The grant process involves bringing together over 40 community volunteers to serve as panelists who review grant applications for local programs. Each program is evaluated on efficiency of operation, financial accountability, and its impact within the community. All programs that receive grant funding align within the United Way’s focus areas of education, financial stability and health. Two programs are focused on food insecurity.
