Grant Application Process

Community Impact Grants

United Way of Williamson County invests annually in local nonprofit agencies and programs that are results-driven, financially stable and actively working to improve lives and build a stronger Williamson County. 

Each year, we provide an opportunity for local nonprofits to apply for a United Way Community Impact Grant ranging from $10,000 to $40,000. 

Grants are allocated to nonprofit organizations who serve residents of Williamson County for programs that help us achieve our stated Community Impact outcomes in the areas of education, financial stability, health and basic needs. 

Letter of Intent

The UWWC Letter of Intent (LOI) is the initial phase in the grant application process which allows applicants to demonstrate how a proposed project or program will offer the most promise towards achieving United Way of Williamson County's Community Impact Goals and Outcomes. Following a volunteer review of the LOIs, selected organizations will be invited to submit a full Community Impact Grant Application for the final round of evaluations. Final approval of the Community Impact Grants will be made by the United Way of Williamson County Board of Directors at their May 2016 Board meeting.
