Granite United Way Launches RFP and RFQ Application Process for 2020
Nonprofits across the state are welcome to engage in the process to become a qualified partner and seek program support – Changes this year make the process more streamlined and offers a 2 year funding cycle.
Granite United Way has launched its statewide Request for Qualified Partner application and Request for Proposals (RFP) for 2020. Certified 501(c)3 organizations can apply for qualification status and apply for funding. All grant funding is intended to support programs that enable individuals and communities to Learn, Earn and Be Healthy.
“Granite United Way’s Community Impact funding will provide two years of funding for programs, with flexibility in funding for agencies and programs to focus on post-COVID recovery in the first six months of the grant cycle,” said Patrick Tufts, President and CEO of Granite United Way.
Granite United Way’s application process involves these steps:
1. The Agency Qualified Partner application requires interested agencies to provide information about the agency’s financial position and governance practices. Qualified partners are included in Granite United Way annual campaign materials, listed in the State Employees Charitable Campaign information, and invited to participate in Granite United Way’s volunteer opportunities. Qualification is also a requirement for all organizations seeking funding from Granite United Way. Applications for Qualified Partner Status will be due on July 14, 2020 by 4:00 p.m.
2. The Community Impact Grant Application requires applicants seeking funding to respond to narrative questions and to provide a program budget, program deliverables, and program participant count by zip code. Applications for Community Impact Grants will be due on July 24 by 4:00 p.m.
“As in previous grantmaking cycles, the review of grant applications and the final grant decision are made by teams of volunteers in each of our six regions. This grant process is increasingly competitive, as the need continues to grow in our regions,” said Tufts. “We are continuously grateful for our volunteers’ commitment to their communities through this process.”
