New Grant Application Process at UCP

For the last two years at United Community Partners we’ve been working steadily at improving our processes, record keeping and strategies for inclusion and engagement with our community around our mission as an organization.  A large part of this project has been getting clear on our granting and services process and ways to encourge community members to make use of the resources available at United Community Partners.

To that end we recently updated our grant application process so that everyone in the community and on the board has a structure to work within and to plan around. We’ve added four regular application periods and information on our turn-around timeframes for decision making by the board.

We’ve also enlarged the board to seven members which will allow us to function effectively even when one or two board members need to be absent from a meeting.

Please take a look! We hope this will make it easier for everyone to make good things happen in our beloved valleys.

We’re all looking forward to being more available, more efficient and more effective together.
