The United Way of Frederick County recently announced their new RFP for the Community Impact Partner Grant Program and their new Community Impact Strategy Map. From their announcement:
"We envision a community that offers opportunities for everyone to succeed. From the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report for Maryland, we have identified that one in three working households in our community have hidden financial struggles and are one emergency away from falling under the federal poverty level. We are implementing this grant making program to help those struggling households thrive.
Awarded grants will be for up to three years starting in July 2018, with required Letters of Interest due on January 12th. Eligible applicants will be invited to attend a mandatory information session on the afternoon of January 18th regarding the grant application, with full applications due on February 18th. For full instructions on how to submit a letter of interest along with the full RFP guidelines, visit https://www.unitedwayfrederick.org/CommunityImpactGrants."
United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Frederick County. We are sharing this grant opportunity as a courtesy to the United Way, with whom we partner on various Frederick-area initiatives, and to Frederick-area grantseekers. The Helen J. Serini Foundation is in no way involved in the grants decision process for United Way. Any questions related to this RFP or other United Way initiatives should be directed to Malcolm Furgol, Director of Community Impact at the United Way of Frederick County.
