United Way of Marshall County Tuesday released its updated grant application process: United Way R4 Grants: Respond, Recover, Reimagine & Rebuild. The new United Way grant process will be used to ensure that basic needs and essential services are being addressed to better support individuals and organizations in Marshall County.

Basic needs may encompass a wide range of programs, services, interventions, and assistance to communities beyond food, shelter, rent/utility assistance, clothing, and medical care. Applications for United Way R4 Grants may be for operational or program support and be for organizational or collaborative initiatives.

“United Way R4 grants will address gaps in services and increase the capacity of organizations to meet the basic needs of Marshall County’s most vulnerable individuals and families,” said Linda Yoder, Executive Director of the United Way of Marshall County. “ALICE households – Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – are a focus for United Way and the updated R4 grant process will help provide assistance where needed most for these working families.”

Organizations that are working to fight for the education, financial stability, and health of Marshall County households may apply for a United Way R4 Grant at https://www.marshallcountyuw.org/R4Grant by clicking on “United Way R4 Grant Application.”

The grant application will remain open to continue to respond to changing or emerging needs.

“The United Way Campaign is an important way you can help fight for the future of local families,” said Rodney Jacobs, Chair of the United Way Board of Directors. “Your campaign donations make sure our trusted community partners are able to respond, recover, reimagine, and rebuild.”
