MONTICELLO, NY — United Way of Sullivan County is accepting applications for community impact funding from not-for-profit agencies within Sullivan County that serve the county’s residents and meet the grant criteria. Organizations must have a paid executive director and community-based board of directors.
Grants will be considered for programs that advance community initiatives identified by a community needs assessment. Grants for 2014 should focus on helping children and youth succeed and will include such initiatives as keeping youth actively engaged in physical and social activities and helping youth avoid unsafe activities and behaviors. Most grants will be funded over a three-year period, for a maximum of $12,000, or up to $4,000 annually. Note that Community Impact Grants cannot be issued to cover an organization’s daily operational expenses.
