Dear Community Agency,



United Way of Jefferson County is currently accepting applications for 2022 funding. We offer grants focused on making an impact in the areas of Education, Financial Stability, Health & Wellness, and Basic Needs, in addition to numerous other opportunities to fill service gaps or impact critical issues.


Deadline to return your application is March 31, 2021 before 11:00PM. 


The allocations process is the cornerstone of United Way. It ensures fiscal and program accountability for all agencies receiving United Way funds while meeting the social services needs of our community. In the process, volunteers challenge each agency’s effectiveness in providing services, review the need for those services in the region, and analyze the impact of United Way funding in meeting those needs. When reviewing proposals from registered 501(c)(3) agencies, volunteers and United Way staff use the following selection criteria:


  • Location: Funding is restricted to Jefferson County.

  • Alignment: Programs must align with our organizational priorities, Education, Financial Stability, Health & Wellness, and Basic Needs.

  • Impact: Programming must be effective as reflected by evaluation efforts and outcomes.

  • Clients: Populations served should encompass people of all backgrounds and abilities. We take special note of the underprivileged, youth, and elderly.


Enclosed in this packet you will find a schedule for the allocation process and detailed criteria each agency must meet before receiving funds.


Application for funding can be found below.


We greatly appreciate your dedication and willingness to serve our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the United Way office.



Thank you,


Laura Rauch
