Notice of Funding Opportunity

Notice of Funding Opportunity
United Way is a driving force of change in Bladen, Hoke, and Robeson Counties. We unite all of our efforts under four focused impact areas:
Education: Every child develops and succeeds academically, socially, and emotionally.
Financial Stability: Ensuring that all residents achieve and maintain financial stability.
Health and Wellness: Everyone has the knowledge, resources, and opportunities to live a healthy lifestyle.
Basic Needs: Ensure all residents' basic needs are met with dignity.
LRUW is interested in partnering with the most efficient, effective, and innovative nonprofit programs in Bladen, Hoke, and Robeson Counties.
The application process is open to all nonprofits. The services most commonly requested from United Way's office, NC-211, and NCCARE360 are for housing, food, and utility assistance. Funding requests that address these issues over the long term, for the participant, will be given priority consideration. 
Any agency seeking funding must demonstrate the ability to operate programs in a manner consistent with the highest standards of quality, which includes compliance with the LRUW management and financial requirements. Programs must be in operation for a minimum of three years.  
Your pre-qualification application must clearly demonstrate that your agency’s mission and potentially funded program aligns with LRUW community impact goals.  The total amount of funding requested should not exceed 50% of your program or agency budget. All agencies applying for funding must be registered with both 2-1-1 and NCCARE360.
LRUW invests in proactive programs with an emphasis on preventions and increasing people’s ability to attain their potential.
