COVID-19 Community Impact Support

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.
