This year's 2019-2020 United Way of Greater Texarkana Community Impact Grant applications will be available Monday.

A mandatory meeting is required for all new applicants to apply for these funds. Call the United Way office at 903-794-3105 to reserve a spot. The meeting takes place from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 26 at Texarkana College in the Business & Computer Technology Building.

There will be a PowerPoint presentation by Molly Riley & Community Impact co-chairs volunteer Tami Eakin and Pam White. Helpful examples will be given by the presenters for the applicants to show them what will need to be completed and submitted in their on-line applications. Those applications are due by 5 p.m. April 29. Presentations by the agencies to the community impact committee will be scheduled in June.

Some of the requirements for funding include:

  • ¬†Applications will be accepted from 501(c)(3) organizations as well as other government, charitable or school-based organizations if the proposal aligns with UWGT's mission.
  • ¬†Programs must demonstrate need and benefit to UWGT's service area.
  • ¬†Programs must have measurable outcomes which are clearly defined and tracked for results.

Programs must align with at least one of UWGT's focus areas of Education, Income, and Health and one or more of the target strategies.

"United Way of Greater Texarkana Community Impact grants are how we invest local dollars in our communities to address specific community centered issues. Funding decisions are made locally through an annual competitive application process. Our Community Impact grants are invested in high performing, nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services aligned with our three strategic priority areas of education, financial stability and health," said Mark Bledsoe, United Way president.

"Awardees help to improve community conditions across our regional footprint in ZIP codes located throughout nine counties, in the two states we serve: Bowie, Cass, Marion, Morris, Red River & Titus in Texas and Lafayette, Little River and Miller in Arkansas."

The application will be available at texarkanaunitedway.org.

On the homepage at the top center click "Our Work" tab, and scroll down to "Community Impact" and click. Then click on "apply for funding."

That will take you to the Community Force website, and there you will click on the 2019 Community Investment Grant. All applications will be completed and submitted online.
