New Initiative Grants now open for 2023-24

Is your organization aware of a local issue that needs to be addressed? Are you considering how to best deliver services to the community? It’s these types of questions United Way is looking to answer through their New Initiative Grants process, open Monday, October 17.

“The New Initiative Grant program is a great opportunity for community organizations,” said Director of Governance and Community Impact Megan Partridge. “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, incorporated not-for-profits or qualified donees that are planning to, or already deliver, social and community services in Perth and/or Huron.

Expressions of interest can be submitted to United Way until November 4. Submissions will 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 are then submitted by November 18, 2022. For more details, GO HERE, call 519-271-7730 ext. 225 or email
