UWGLA Accepting Applications for 2013 RFP Grants

UWGLA Accepting Applications for 2013 RFP Grants




United Way of Greater Los Angeles is currently accepting applications for funding in its three priority areas: Housing Stability, Educational Achievement and Financial Stability. Please review the following information on the RFP process and eligibility requirements before completing the official application.

Funding Priorities

To apply for a United Way RFP grant, your organization must be involved in one or more of the following areas: Housing Stability, Educational Achievement or Financial Stability.

Housing Stability: Our approach to ending homelessness centers on the “Housing First” model, which provides homeless individuals and families with housing and a network of supportive services to stabilize their living situation as quickly as possible. Key strategies include rapid rehousing system and permanent supportive housing (funds are coordinated through the Home For Good Funders Collaborative).

Educational Achievement: Our primary goal is to increase the County graduation rate while ensuring that every student graduates fully prepared for college and career. We support organizations and initiatives which provide academic support to students, offer leadership/professional development to educators, promote parent engagement or focus on raising student achievement at the middle school level.

Financial Stability: We’re seeking to ensure the financial security of all Angelenos through workforce development, asset-building and budget management techniques - the key building blocks for independence and long-term stability. Thanks to these efforts, local families, individuals and military veterans will possess the skills they need to not only survive, but to thrive.

Organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are classified as “not a private foundation” under Section 509(a) are welcome to apply. Organizations must operate or demonstrate the ability to operate within Los Angeles County.
