United Way of Nevada County Allocation Process

Every year, allocations are distributed from the United Way of Nevada County Community Impact Fund.  During this process, current United Way partners may apply to continue partnership and/or request funding.  Additionally, other qualified local agencies may apply to become new partners of United Way. Applications were available for any community based, non-profit 501(c)3 organization that has provided Health & Human Services to the residents of Nevada County for at least 3 years. The deadline has passed for applications.

UWNC is now going through the process of going over the applications and making site visits. It's part of the due diligence United Way does for its donors.
