United Way Perth-Huron New Initiative Grants Encourage Innovation

How do you best deliver services to the community? What issues need to be addressed? Those are the type of questions United Way Perth-Huron (UWPH) is looking to answer with New Initiative Grant funding.

“The New Initiative Grant process is a great opportunity for the community,” says UWPH Executive Director Ryan Erb, “It’s a way to respond to emerging needs, test service models, support smaller projects and help pilot new ones.”

New Initiative Grants provide up to $20,000 for one year for projects developed by registered Canadian charities or not-for-profits who are planning to, or already deliver, social and community services in Perth and/or Huron County.

Expressions of interest can be submitted to UWPH until Friday, November 17 at 5 pm. Submissions will then be reviewed based on eligibility requirements and organizations will be notified whether or not their initiative has been approved to move on to the full application stage. Full applications must then be submitted by December 8, 2017 at 5 pm.

“Past grant recipients, like the iVolunteer Perth-Huron website project, have addressed service gaps in interesting and innovative ways,” says Erb, “We’re looking forward to seeing what plans organizations have to help us address needs and continue to build strong communities.”
