United Way of North Idaho
2019-2020 Community Care Fund
United Way of North Idaho is currently accepting applications for Community Care Fund Grants. UWNI has an updated grant process which will be awarded as a one-time payment. The next round of CCF grants will be awarded in June and applications are due by April 1, 2019. Nonprofit organizations who have received funding in the past will notice a slight change in the reporting structure. As in recent years, our focus is to make an impact in the areas of education, financial stability, and health. With that in mind, our grant application and reporting fall within those impact areas, with education split into School Readiness and Youth Success. Feel free to take a look around the application, and when you're ready to submit, follow the instructions below.
Step 1: Request username and password by emailing Keri@UnitedWayofNorthIdaho.org. Requests are typically handled within a day or two, but please allow one week to process. You may complete the application without a login but will be unable to save your work
Step 2: Determine which impact area most closely aligns with the program for which you are seeking funding. Program examples can be viewed by clicking the icons of each impact area. Program examples are provided to help agencies identify which impact area a program will fit; these are common examples of programs but are by no means comprehensive. If you are unsure about which impact area to select for your program, please contact us for guidance. A technical assistance and FAQ session will be offered February 27, 11:00am-1:00pm at United Way.
