COVID-19 Emergency Funding Request Application


Working with a broad array of nonprofits, donors and volunteers across its two-county footprint, United Way serving Howard and Tipton Counties is launching an emergency fundraising effort in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

United Way serving Howard and Tipton Counties, and our social service partners are committed to ensuring that our most vulnerable families have the support they need to weather the short- and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak. 

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and economic fallout, this funding can be used for organizational needs as well as for direct client assistance for emergent needs.  Due to the fluid situation of this emergency, organizations will be permitted to apply for emergency funding more than once as additional needs arise.

UWHTC Rapid Response grants are available for agencies to apply for along the following continuum. Agencies who receive funding for one stage may apply for additional funding as long as they are moving forward through each of the phases and all other grantee requirements are met.

This is an update to the original Grant posting.  It includes the four stages of recovery using the COVID-19 community impact model.

Reopening – Providing assistance to help establish new protocols and purchase supplies needed for organizations to reopen safely.
Funding for this phase is now closed.

Recalibration- The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront disparities and inequities in the populations we serve. Funding for this phase focuses on reimagining what programs and service delivery methodologies can be used to promote a fairer and less vulnerable society.

Reinforcement – This phase focuses on strengthening initiatives from the Recalibration phase and working to make them a permanent part of the organization.

Resilience – Using the lessons learned from the three prior phases, how has your organization reinforced capacity, delivery, and goals to continue into the future even if new and different barriers come into place?
