Basic Needs and Strategic Priorities Grant

Basic Needs & Strategic Priorities
United Way of Broome County is taking action on what Broome County residents feel is most important while also working to address poverty in our community. The Strategic Priorities, identified in 2016, that we will fund through this RFP are:

  • Families are empowered and economically stable.
  • Youth are prepared to live, learn, work and contribute.
  • Seniors are healthy and safe.

Through this RFP, United Way of Broome County will also fund programs that work to meet the basic needs of Broome County residents. Meeting peoples’ basic needs and reducing poverty through targeted initiatives will transform the lives of individuals, moving them from crisis to self-sufficiency.  Aligning with the common agenda of the Binghamton-Broome Anti-Poverty Initiative (BBAPI), we envision a Broome County with vibrant neighborhoods where residents feel safe and can live a healthy, financially stable life with increased access to resources and services.
