Wayne County Grant Recipients

The United Way's Wayne County Fund distribution Committee is comprised of people who live and work in Wayne County. The committee meets annually to review grant applications from organizations providing direct services to Wayne County residents and awards monetary grants with funds raised during the prior year's United way campaign.
