2017-18 Community Investment Grant
The resource investment process is the cornerstone of United Way's accountability to the community. This process allows local volunteers to determine how best to address community needs with locally raised funds. The volunteers involved commit hundreds of hours to assess applications and make funding recommendations to the United Way of Central Texas Board of Directors.
The United Way of Central Texas will invest about $1.6 million dollars during FY 2016 into programs and initiatives advancing the common good in the areas of health, education, financial stability, and basic needs; the four key pillars to the United Way's Community Impact Model.
The United Way Citizens Review Committee leads the process where teams of community leaders, volunteers, and donors spend two months considering agency requests. This process includes a thorough application review, agency interviews, and site visits. The process gathers information on the measurable impact of each program.
