Local nonprofit organizations invited to apply for United Way grants

EMPORIA, Kan. – The United Way of the Flint Hills is inviting nonprofit organizations in Chase, Coffey, Greenwood, Lyon, Morris, Osage and Woodson counties to apply for emerging needs grants. Launched in 2015, the funding allows organizations to apply for grants up to $2,000 for new projects and new programs.

“This funding stream provides us with even more opportunities to engage with the community and ensure that organizations are able to have access to United Way funding for their work,” said Jami Reever, executive director, United Way Of The Flint Hills. “We have developed many new partnerships due to this grant program and believe that a little bit of funding can help an organization do great things.”

Over the past two years, the United Way has funded a wide array of programs and projects with the emerging needs grants including a disc golf course for Madison-Virgil Schools; KU Alzheimer’s Project that provided fitness programs for local residents; and Flint Hills Rebuilders, Council Grove, making home repairs for low income seniors.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant can download an application at www.unitedwayoftheflinthills.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. For more information, call Reever at 620-342-7564.
