2019 United Way of Central Missouri Community Support Grants


United Way of Central Missouri is proud to announce the immediate opportunity for up to $197,334 in Community Support Grant funding.  Community Support Grants are investments United Way of Central Missouri makes to address immediate, critical unmet needs or support emerging needs in the seven counties we serve. Grant opportunities are open to any health and human service 501(c)(3)--not just United Way partner agencies. To be eligible, agencies must meet the grant critieria, serve all or a portion of the United Way of Central Missouri service area (Cole, Moniteau, Osage, Miller, Camden, Morgan, and southern Callaway counties) and have been in operation for two or more years. These one-time grants provide health and human service agencies the opportunity to start a new program, enhance an area of service or purchase needed equipment and supplies.  Community Support Grants allow United Way to connect with community partners and strengthen efforts to fight for the health, education, financial stability and basic needs of every person in our community.  Grant funding must be utilized to address a need in the area of behavioral health, education, food insecurity, financial stability, health, shelter or transportation. United Way of Central Missouri understands that behavioral health is a critical issue and therefore grants addressing behavioral health will receive priority consideration. 


To be eligible to apply for grant consideration, agencies must meet specific prequalification questions included in the grant application. The application deadline is March 29, 2019 at 5:00 pm, and grant recipients will be notified no later than June 1, 2019.
