Niagara ON, December 6, 2023 – Beginning January 2, 2024, United Way Niagara will accept Letters of Intent in the Healthy People, Strong Communities priority area for programs and initiatives that strengthen the social capital in communities across Niagara, thereby improving the lives of our community members. New this year, there are two streams in this funding priority area. Both streams would span a three-year funding period.
1. Traditional Three-Year Funding
This stream provides three-year funding for programs and services that improves the health, wellbeing and strength of the community, through equitable access to supports, for people in need in Niagara. Programs and services funded within this Priority Area will ultimately build the social capital within the community and contribute to the health of Niagara’s people.
Eligible programs should contribute to: improved personal wellbeing and neighbourhood health and, a stronger community with equitable opportunities for everyone to participate.
New this year, there are two streams in this funding priority area. Both streams would span a three-year funding period.
2. Neighbourhood Collaborative Three-Year Funding
As part of the Healthy People, Strong Communities Priority Area, United Way Niagara will fund one or more collaborative(s), for up to three years, between two or more agencies, to develop social capital in an at-risk neighbourhood(s) in Niagara. The program should be developed with input from community members/neighbours through an outreach and/or consultation process, and may be a pilot that can be replicated in other neighbourhoods in the future.
The Program should address systemic issues at the neighbourhood level, build social capital, connectedness and belonging, and remove barriers to participation.
LETTERS OF INTENT will be accepted January 2 to January 23, 2024.
Successful candidates will be invited to submit applications January 30 – March 1, 2024
