Community Impact Grant
United Way of the Kearney Area has dedicated $10,000 in 2013 for Community Impact Grants that improve our community through the areas of education, income, and health.
Organizations within Buffalo, Kearney, Phelps, Harlan, Franklin or Custer counties need not be current United Way partner agencies to apply for the funding.
Applications for the grant dollars are due to the United Way by December 30 and will be finalized at the February Board Meeting.
Current Board President Shawna Erbsen will lead a group of community members who will review the applications. "The Community Impact Grants give United Way of the Kearney Area an avenue to support innovative new projects throughout our entire region" Erbsen said. "United Way Worldwide has helped us define measurable outcomes that support our school systems, increase income for families, and improve the general health of our communities. The Community Impact Grant process is our way of inviting non-profit organizations to launch a project that will create change for those in need right here at home."
