United Way Grant Application Process Now Open for Wayne County

Now in its 15th year, the Wayne County United Way Fund Distribution Committee is pleased to once again announce that it is accepting applications for grant opportunities. Over the past 14 years, the United Way has distributed over $750,000 to more than a dozen community and human service organizations providing critical programs and services in Wayne County.

Applicants must be non-profit, 501(c)(3) health and human service organizations providing in-person, direct services in Wayne County. Funding may be requested for existing programs, new programs or initiatives, program expansion and capital items. The grants available will range from $500 to $4,000. The revenue for the grants was raised during last year’s United Way campaign by individuals, businesses and foundations who specifically wanted to support services for Wayne County residents.
