Community Care Fund Agency Application

United Way of North Idaho

2019-2020 Community Care Fund

Agency Application

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.  

 

Education: School Readiness

Helping youth and children achieve their potential. Children (birth through age 5) enter school ready to learn and succeed.

Education: Youth Success

Children do well in school, graduate on time, and are ready to succeed in post-secondary education and a career path.

Financial Stability

Individuals and families attain financial stability by lowering costs and accessing benefits; individuals attain family-sustaining jobs that offer the opportunity for advancement; individuals have adequate transportation.

Health & Wellness

Individuals and families lead healthy lives through access to quality medical services including physical, dental, and behavioral health; prevent and respond to family violence, child abuse and neglect, and suicide; encompasses efforts to create healthy systems and environments.

 

Step 3: Carefully review the reporting requirements in the Results Framework.

In addition to program-specific metrics, all funded agencies must be able to report:
  1. Number of unduplicated individuals served by this grant (specifying population served--students/children/adults/seniors, etc)
  2. County or counties served
  3. Quantity of volunteers and volunteer hours engaged
  4. Number of low-moderate income and ALICE households participating in or benefitting from the program (LMI= at or below 80% Area Median Income) 

Step 4: Complete the application below. The deadline for the Spring cycle is Monday, April 1, 2019 by 5:00pm. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed by the committee.
