United Way To Hold Community Impact Funding Informational Meeting

November 30, 2018

The Community Impact Committee of the United Way in Greater Attleboro/Taunton will hold an informational meeting on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 9am at the offices of Princess House, (470 Myles Standish Blvd, Taunton, MA).  This meeting is mandatory for non-profit, human service, 501(c) 3 organizations, providing services in UWGAT’s catchment area, interested in applying for FY20 community impact funding.  Soup kitchens, food pantries, and emergency assistance programs do not need to attend this meeting.

The purpose of this meeting is to review the FY20 community impact funding application process and timeline. Community Impact Committee volunteers and United Way staff will explain the process of awarding grants to organizations and initiatives that will create positive, lasting change for people in need in the region.  The organizations must meet current local needs while addressing United Way’s priority areas.

The eleven communities in United Way’s Greater Attleboro and Taunton region include: Attleboro, Berkley, Dighton, Mansfield, North Attleboro, Norton, Plainville, Raynham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, and Taunton.

This meeting will serve as the annual, formal public forum to ask questions and receive detailed information regarding UWGAT’s FY20 funding process.  It will also be an opportunity to meet the Community Impact staff at United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, who will be working with the Greater Attleboro/Taunton Regional Advisory Board and Community Impact Committee on the FY20 funding application process.  United Way of Greater Attleboro and Taunton and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley recently merged to create greater opportunities for collaboration and to serve the most people in need.
