Grant Proposal Deadline Extended

A great deal has happened in the past 48 hours as organizations and communities respond to the public health threat of COVID-19. We know that agencies large and small are devoting their energies to considering what the COVID-19 outbreak means for their operations and their clients, and taking appropriate action. Workplaces and services may be significantly impacted as social distancing measures are taken to help prevent or slow the spread of the virus. 

As a result, Rice County United Way is offering flexibility on its March 16 grant proposal deadline. If your organization hopes to submit a grant proposal but needs more time, please email Penny Hillemann at and let her know your situation.
