More than $3.1 Million Invested in our Community
United Way announces investments of more than $3.1 million to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of individuals and families in the Blackhawk Region.

“The integrity of United Way’s volunteer driven Community Grant process assures donors that responsible stewardship is our top priority,” said Tom McCawley, United Way Blackhawk Region Board Chair. “In this grant cycle, we are intentionally focusing resources on addressing the most critical needs of our region.”
2021 - 2023 Funded Partners
United Way’s Community Grants are awarded to programs, not agencies. A nonprofit organization may receive more than one Community Grant depending on the number of applicant programs approved under a single agency’s umbrella. Programs awarded grants in the July 2021 – June 2023 funding cycle will be administered by 20 nonprofit agencies.

The two-year Community Grant process is designed to award funds to programs demonstrating community need, articulating program efficacy and results. Through the highly competitive process, United Way Blackhawk Region (UWBR)’s volunteer board of directors approved $2,881,277 in grants for 37 local health and human service programs.
