Urgent Need Grant

Main Content

We ask that all individuals and organizations who are interested in applying for Urgent Needs grants please complete the form below. Urgent Needs requests typically range between $500 - $10,000 depending on the type of need.  You will not be able to save this form and come back to it later. We recommend writing longer answers in Word and copying and pasting into the form.

When an urgent need request comes through, we want to know:

  • What is the request specifically for and why is it an urgent need?
  • How much are you asking for from United Way? What is the total project expense?
  • Is this something the agency should have reasonably known to budget for?
  • Has the agency attempted or exhausted other funding sources (insurance, other funders, public request for help, etc.)?
  • Has the agency requested urgent needs funding previously in this fiscal year? If yes, was it for the same issue and how much was it for?

If you have any questions or would like to submit your answers via email instead of using the form, please reach out to our team here.
