2013-2016 Program Grants

United Way of Snohomish County is excited to announce $7.9 million in
107 targeted community investments for the 2013-2016 grant cycle addressing a set of priority investment areas identified by three panels of volunteers.

Confirmation letters were sent out on May 29.

Volunteers who serve on United Way’s Kids Matter, Families Matter and Community Matters Vision Councils spent more than 2,500 hours over the past year in a three-step process that included reviewing community conditions, establishing priority investment areas and evaluating grant applications.

Local health and human service nonprofit organizations in Snohomish County were eligible to apply for the multi-year program grants. Grant investments were made by each Vision Council and were based on the alignment of program services with that council’s community outcome and priority investment areas, as well as the strength of the applicant’s outcome-based evaluation systems.

The 106 programs will serve people living in 23 communities throughout Snohomish County from Stanwood and Darrington in the North, Sultan and Gold Bar in the East and the larger cities along Interstate 5. Volunteers gave careful consideration to vulnerable populations, geographic diversity and programs that address critical service gaps in our community .
