Strategic Community Grants Program: What You Need to Know

Nov 5, 2020 | Blog

Calling all local non-profits!

Starting November 2, United Way of Broome County’s Strategic Community Grants Program opens for applications.


We strive to collaboratively better Broome County through impact areas, including Health, Education, Financial Stability, and Basic Needs of those in our community. Taking these areas into consideration, the Strategic Community Grant Program is made up of 3 separate grant programs, including Strategic Priorities Grant Program, Basic Needs Grant Program, and Healthy Lifestyles Coalition (HLC) Grant Program.  The Request for Proposals (RFP), is open to non-profit organizations throughout Broome County interested in applying for community-based projects and programs funding.

To be eligible for funding, organizations must complete a multi-step process that begins with a Letter of Intent (LOI). The LOI provides a broad yet concise description of the program requesting funding and the anticipated program outcomes.


If your organization is interested in applying for multiple programs for 2021-2022 funding, a LOI will need to be completed for each program to be considered.


Final proposals are due by Friday, January 15, 2021. To learn more about eligibility and how to apply, visit here.




United Way of Broome County will hold a virtual information session to offer organizations the opportunity to learn more about the Strategic Community Grants Program, the application and review process. The session will take place on November 17, 2020, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. For more information and to register, visit uwbroome.org/twt/




In addition to the information session, we are holding office hours during the week of December 7 to answer any additional questions or concerns. Make sure to reserve your appointment time here!


Our Community Initiatives Manager, Lindsey Mott, is also available for support at [email protected].


We look forward to working with you to create a better Broome County!
