2021 Grant Recipients

United Way of Northeast Georgia is delighted to announce its 2021 grant recipients, a total of 22 programs across the 12-county region. The grantees provide programming in one of the three pillars of United Way of Northeast Georgia: basic needs, early childhood success, and workforce development. With the help of a team of grant reviewers, composed of community members from across our entire region and from a range of industries, applications were carefully reviewed. Grant recipients receive financial funding for the entirety of the year and provide updates quarterly about their program.

Grant applications are open each year from May-June. 

From our Director of Community Impact, Mark Madison:


"Starting nearly five years ago, United Way of Northeast Georgia began the process of changing from Community Chest to a Community Impact model. Through this data-led and volunteer-driven grant application process we give more strategic focus to our investments as well as our nonprofit partners that demonstrably meet the highest priority needs in our region. We are excited to finally introduce our newest grantees, as we begin our first year of many in Community Impact. We’ve always partnered with incredible programs and agencies, and through Community Impact we have the strategy, coordination, and measures to show it.”
