United Way of Broome County is accepting proposals for funding of one-time grants through the Venture and Special Assistance Grant Program until 3 p.m., March 14, 2014. Proposals will be accepted only from incorporated, not-for-profit health and human service agencies providing services in Broome County with Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status. Funds will be distributed to the selected programs in 2014-2015.
Each proposal should be a request for a one-time grant to a program whose primary purpose is to enhance the United Way’s efforts to address identified community needs in the areas of education, income and health and is focused on programs providing quality early child care, chemical dependency prevention, youth mental health, physical fitness & wellness, health access, and service access for seniors. Programs addressing other areas will be considered based on justification of community and financial need.
