United Way grant meeting planned

United Way of Washington County will host a meeting for all local nonprofit agencies interested in applying to United Way for Community Impact Grant funding in 2013 at 2 p.m. Jan. 9 at the Wilfred R. Cameron Wellness Center on Manifold Road in South Strabane Township.

Changes in the 2013-15 grant process will be outlined. Currently funded agencies and any community nonprofits interested in applying for United Way funding should send a representative to attend. The programs and services United Way is seeking to fund will be explained, and the application process will be outlined.

Community stakeholders, composed of representatives from schools, churches, local government, social service agencies, medical facilities, employment programs and nonprofit providers, have identified the most pressing community needs in Washington County in the three focus areas United Way has adopted: financial stability, education and health.

United Way will be funding the programs and services that have been identified as vital to improving conditions for local people. Financial literacy, emergency assistance, mentoring, tutoring, independent adulthood, preventive care, victim services/advocacy, substance abuse and mental health care are among United Way’s funding priorities for the 2013-15 funding cycle.
