We are no longer accepting applications for New Initiative grants.
The United Way of Perth-Huron has opened for applications for New Initiative grants. Grants will be received from Tuesday November 1st to Friday December 9th, 2016.
The new initiative grant funding stream was created to respond to:
- Emerging needs.
- Test and evaluate new models of service.
- Support collaborative partnerships or smaller-scale projects.
- Assist in the pilot of new projects.
Previous projects that have been funded include the County of Huron, Local Immigration Partnership. This funding allowed for a settlement counsellor to provide support services for newcomers to the Huron community specifically around assistance with government documents.
Another project included the Community Trends Platform, a web-based information platform being created that will track online quality of life indicators that speak to a community’s well-being and is available to all members of the community. These community indicators provide information on the overall direction of a community, providing data on where it is improving, declining, and/ or staying the same.
Funding for New Initiative grants is for one year and the information can be found at perthhuron.unitedway.ca under funding.
