MONROE - During 2016, the United Way will provide more than $250,000 in funding to assist local programs that are focused on addressing the most critical needs of families and individuals throughout Green County. This funding is made possible through contributions to the annual United Way Campaign.

Applications are currently being accepted by the United Way of Green County Inc. for program funding in 2017.

United Way allocations are awarded to support local programs working to improve the education, income and health of people in our community. The United Way welcomes requests for funding from all qualified programs working to meet the needs of Green County residents in the following areas: helping children and youth to succeed, meeting basic needs, building self-sufficiency and promoting health and wellness.

The United Way of Green County by-laws state that all agencies applying for United Way funding must have or be operating under a fiscal agent with a tax exempt status under the 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 and must have conducted a recognized program of health, welfare, or other nonprofit activity providing services to residents of Green County for at least one year immediately preceding admission to participation. Programs not meeting these requirements cannot be considered for 2017 funding.

Funding applications must be completed and returned to the United Way of Green County by April 12. An allocation panel interview will be scheduled for all programs submitting a funding application.
