Community Funding Process and Calendar
We are pleased to announce the application for the Community Impact Funding Cycle for 2020-21. The Community Impact Funding Program is a competitive process, and the United Way of Licking County (UWLC) is striving to make positive changes by utilizing the 2016 Community Blueprint, a collaboration of non-profit organizations, government agencies, businesses and funders to determine the needs, and the programs to help change the conditions and improve the lives of individuals in our community.
For the 2020-2021 funding cycle, UWLC seeks to:
Partner with organizations with strong leadership, staff, evaluation process, and financial stability;
Focus and leverage resources;
Invest in evidence-based best practices;
Measure results more frequently; and
Encourage participation in our Annual Campaign.
The grant process is open to all tax-exempt, non-profit organizations and government entities serving Licking County.
