COVID-19 Community Impact Support

Thank you, Greater High Point!

At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, United Way of Greater High Point established the UWGHP Emergency Relief Fund to aid residents impacted by COVID-19.   By collaborating with our partner agencies and other local non-profits to determine ongoing needs, these funds have been distributed to help provide COVID-19 impact support to families, children, seniors and all in need throughout our community.  The UWGHP Emergency Fund which was in place through May 31, 2020 allocated $241,019 through a grant process to qualified, local non-profits --- grants specifically designed to meet the emerging or unmet community needs, and support innovative solutions to local COVID-19 impact issues. 

Thank you, Greater High Point, for responding to the call of action during these difficult times!   The challenges of this pandemic have tested the resilience of our community and your compassion to help others who are struggling is a testimony of hope.

United Way of Greater High Point is not accepting emergency fund grant applications at this time.

What is the UWGHP COVID-19 Emergency Fund Grant?

A COVID-19 Emergency Fund Grant from the United Way of Greater High Point is a small, grant to qualified, local nonprofits.  These grants are designed to meet emerging or unmet needs, and/or to support innovative solutions to local issues as a result of COVID-19.  They can be used for:

  • new programs/projects

  • capital requests (must get prior approval from UWGHP VP of Community Impact prior to submitting a request) 

  • to purchase needed equipment or supplies. 

 

In more limited cases, grants can be used for administrative expenses such as staffing so that a program or project can increase its sustainability with the support that paid staff can provide. 

Grants are open to the United Way of Greater High Point’s partner and non-partner agencies as well as round 1 grant recipients. If previously awarded funding in round 1, total awards and requests for round 1 and 2 cannot exceed $10,000 combined.
