PROJECT PERIOD: one (1) year to complete the project

DEFINITION:

Community Impact (CI) grant requests can be for (1) programs and/or services already being provided, (2) new initiatives to address community needs or, (3) building repairs and/or the purchase of equipment. CI grants can be used to extended programs already in existence and funded through other sources. Funding would help to increase the number of clients served. CI grants may also be used to implement new programs or services not currently funded by the agency. These programs are greatly encouraged, especially when they address vital community needs. Grant request for programs that address basic needs will be prioritized. While CI grants may be used for building repairs, monies cannot be used for building improvements such as permanent fixtures or minor construction. Monies may be used for acquisition of materials and equipment to provide services to clients.
Should a project be delayed and the agency invest the funds, while project is started and completed, subject funds will be restricted to the approved venture. Additionally, funds lapsed past the deadline are to be returned along with the equivalent interest earned.
Failure to return unexpended funds or the required receipts will result in the reduction of any future allocation of funds. Such failure by a non-United Way Agency could preclude the awarding of any future funds by the United Way of Laredo.
