Local nonprofits invited to apply for emerging needs grants

EMPORIA, Kan. – The United Way of the Flint Hills is inviting nonprofits located in Chase, Coffey, Greenwood, Lyon, Morris, Osage, and Woodson counties to apply for the organization’s emerging needs grants. Launched in 2015, the funding allows organizations to apply for grants up to $1,000 for new projects and new programs.

“The emerging needs grant program has been an exciting way for the United Way of the Flint Hills to learn about new programs and develop new partnerships in all of the communities we serve,” said Jami Reever, executive director. “We’ve loved the diversity of the applications we’ve received in the past and know that for many organizations, this grant opportunity makes new ideas possible. We encourage any nonprofit in our community to apply.”

Over the past two years, the United Way has funded a wide array of programs and projects with the emerging needs grants, including freezer units for a food pantry, food and hygiene items for students in need, and fitness opportunities for seniors.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant can download an application at www.unitedwayoftheflinthills.org. Applications are accepted four times a year, and the next deadline is June 1, 2018. For more information, contact Reever at 620-342-7564.
