2015-2016 United Way of Whitewater Valley Formal Grant Application
United Way of Whitewater Valley is sharpening its focus by addressing key issues to create positive lasting change in the lives of Wayne and Union County residents. We are focused in making strategic choices, which is critical, because needs are growing faster than resources. Together with community partners, we will concentrate our efforts on pressing issues defined by the community.
Following the Community Voices Assessment, which was completed in 2008, the United Way and its partners identified four main areas of focus that were of greatest concern. Those four areas are: Education, Youth & Families, Health, and Community Vitality. To lead the work in each of these areas, United Way created Vision Councils. The Vision Councils are comprised of strategically recruited members who have expertise or an identified skill set beneficial to the target issues of the Vision Council. Members are local experts on the issue, direct service providers, community representatives, and include representation from the United Way Board of Directors.

As part of our process for determining who would move forward to the formal grant application, each Vision Council met to review and evaluate the Letters of Inquiry (LOI) that were submitted by those organizations wishing to apply for funding. There were many commendable efforts and programs presented, with a record number of submissions. The decision-making process was difficult with many worthwhile organizations vying for a limited amount of grant dollars.
