United Way Grant Management

United Way of Alamance County’s 2021 Community Investment application is now closed and will reopen in the fall of 2021. United Way staff and board members have been working diligently to streamline the application and bring an equity lens to our work and outcomes. We are working to engage communities whose voices have traditionally been marginalized and meet their needs. Due to a more streamlined process this year, we are eliminating the agency presentations.

For returning applicants, applications are available on the grant management software. Please contact Sally with any technical issues. 

For new applicants, please contact Sally Gordon (sgordon@uwalamance.org) to schedule a meeting to discuss your program and funding needs. 

Grant funding will now take place from January 1-December 31 each year. You can find a PDF copy of the application here: 2021_Community_Investment_Application
