COMMUNITY IMPACT GRANTS
United Way of Northwest Louisiana accepts grant applications annually beginning in August through a two-stage application process. We award grants of varying sizes based on community needs in alignment with our United Way focus areas. Nonprofits with a 501(c)(3) status in our ten parish region are encouraged to apply. (Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne, DeSoto, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, Webster, and Winn.)
Timeline for 2020-2021 Cycle
Due to the Novel COVID-19 Pandemic, United Way must adjust our timeline and funding decisions. When the new timeline is solidified, Stage Two Applicants will be notified of funding decisions and award schedules.
Considering the uncertainty surrounding the pervasive nature of COVID-19, and the vulnerability to our communities, United Way has not set dates for our Stage One (LOI) training sessions (usually occurring in July). While abiding by the Governor’s Stay-at-Home order, our team is assessing the situation on a weekly basis and will make decisions as the situation develops.
