(BLACKHAWK REGION) – United Way Blackhawk Region (UWBR) is accepting Admission Eligibility applications beginning November 8, 2022, for health and human service programs that are new to its investment process or those who have not received an investment in the last two grant cycles, as well as have been in operation for a minimum of three years. Admission Eligibility forms should be submitted online before 4:00 p.m. on November 22, 2022. Late Admission Eligibility forms will not be accepted.
Nonprofit organizations seeking consideration of their programs for United Way’s highly competitive community grants should have the ability to provide measurable outcomes; address specific health and human service needs; align with United Way’s mission and impact areas of health, education and financial stability; provide program services in Rock County, Wis., and/or Northern Winnebago County, Ill.; demonstrate a need for United Way funds; and be fiscally responsible and efficient in administration and operation while avoiding duplication of services.
The 2023-2025 investment cycle is a 24-month period beginning July 2023 and ending in June 2025. United Way Blackhawk Region’s investment priorities are evolving and therefore may change from one grant cycle to the next. An award in one cycle does not guarantee any future awards.
Interested organizations seeking grant consideration for programs not currently funded by United Way Blackhawk Region should complete the Admission Eligibility form at LiveUnitedBR.org/grants. Acceptance of an Admission Eligibility form does not guarantee funding but allows the applicant to advance to the full application process.
