United Way of Nevada County has opened the partnership application process for nonprofit organizations that provide health and human services to the residents of Nevada County. United way of Nevada County Executive Director, Meghan Timpany says three different applications are available.
“I think that it’s important for health and human service nonprofits that are interested in getting some funding from United Way and to contact us so that we can give them the information they need. I think a lot of people don’t understand how the funding process works for United Way and the first piece of it is applying to be an affiliate partner.”
The 2011 / 2012 United Way of Nevada County Community Investment Fund will be directed towards three critical impact areas. Education: helping children and adults achieve their potential through education and mentoring program, Income: Helping families and seniors become financially stable and independent by supporting basic needs and Heath: Improving people’s health by increasing access to critical healthcare services, reducing substance abuse, child abuse, and domestic violence.
