United Way of Blair County awards funds raised through its Community Campaign annually to 501(c)(3) organizations that operate programs within Blair County that have the greatest potential to make a positive impact on identified priority need areas. Funds are awarded through a competitive grant process. The 2019-2020 application process will open in January for a one-year grant cycle. Any 501(c)(3) non-profit, human service organization that provides a program to Blair County residents that has a measurable impact on one of four locally determined focus areas (Health, Education, Income, and Emergency Needs) will be eligible to apply for United Way funding. For more information about these need areas, please refer to the Community Plan.
