To apply for a Community Impact Grant, an applicant’s request must align with one or more of the four priority investment areas – health and safety, education, financial stability, and/or resilience – and must be a verifiable nonprofit with a volunteer governing body and have current financials, among other qualifications.
All proposals will be assessed on a competitive basis and applicants are not guaranteed to receive funding. The review process will use standard criteria, including applicant program’s alignment with goals outlined in the United Way of Deschutes County Community Impact Priorities.
United Way of Deschutes County will hold RFP Information Sessions before the propsal due date. Attendance at one session is REQUIRED for each organization that intends to submit a proposal. The purpose of the session is to review proposal criteria, answer questions and identify proposal assistance options.
