United Way accepting mini grant

applications

The United Way of Union County is now accepting applications for Community Impact Mini Grants.

“Community Impact grants are designed to reach further in the community to meet additional needs that will impact even more lives than our annual campaign allows,” Executive Director Alexis Alexander said.

Funding requests should present innovative approaches to meeting the health and human services needs of our community, she added. Priority will be given to projects that address United Way of Union County priority issues - education, health services, culture/recreation, safety and violence, and healthy behaviors.

Applicants must operate as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization in Union County, demonstrate the ability to meet a need in our community and not currently act as a partner agency of United Way.

Deadline for application is noon Feb. 23. To request a grant application, or for more information, contact Alexander at 870-862-4903 or alexis@unitedwayunioncounty.com.
