Funding Opportunities with United Way

Please see the information below about available grant funds and other information regarding funding from United Way.

Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) Phase 34 Funding

2017 Community Impact Funding Application is Now Closed & Will Reopen Spring 2018

Outside Agency Funding is now closed

United Way has opened a competitive application process for available grant funding totaling $250,000. Eligible organizations include those that meet all of the following requirements:

  • Recognized as public charity under IRS Section 501(c)3 since November 30, 2016 or before
  • Programming that has been in operation for more than one year prior to the application deadline
  • Provides health and human services within the geographic boundaries of Pasco County

The funding which makes these grants possible comes from Pasco County Government. For a number of years Pasco County has provided $250,000 in funding to United Way of Pasco County to fund services which are not provided through local government operations. Traditionally this funding has supported programs which help residents with food, shelter, safety, financial stability, education, and healthcare.

Organizations do not need to have a previous funding relationship with United Way of Pasco County to apply for this grant. Organizations with innovative programming addressing community health and human service needs are highly encouraged to apply. Additionally, organizations which have developed formal collaborations with each other are also encouraged to apply as a collaborative effort under one fiscal agent.

Organizations should visit our online grant site – eCImpact Community Impact Management – to begin the application process.  Organizations with an existing profile can login using their email and password.  Organizations with NO existing profile should follow the steps on the website to begin the application process and officially determine their eligibility.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. November 30, 2017. Late or incomplete applications will be rejected by the online application system.

During the application period, United Way staff is available to answer questions and provide assistance in understanding the application for funding.  However, no questions will be answered after Noon on Wednesday, November 22, 2017.  Please login to the site and begin applications early to provide enough time to get questions answered.  After the application closes on November 30, your program may be requested to provide additional information.  It is our goal to have funding decisions made by early January 2018 with funding payments made monthly through December 2018.

If you have questions about the application, please contact Patty Sutton at 727-835-2031.

2017 Outside Agency Funding Allocations

As part of Pasco County’s commitment to residents, $250,000 was set aside in the 2017 budget cycle for United Way of Pasco to distribute, through a competitive grant process, to non-county agencies that provide much-needed human services to residents. Part of the funding amount comes from Pasco Utilities and the Round-Up program. A committee of community volunteers reviewed grant applications and made award determinations.
