New Programs Welcome

Jul 1, 2021 | Grants, News

United Way of Greater Fall River is looking for new programs to fund through a Request for Proposals process this month.  Any 501(c)3 organization wishing to become an Agency Partner for 2021-2022 within our service area is invited to apply for funding.

For the past 74 years, UWGFR has worked with a core group of “Member Agencies.”  As we shift to a Modern United Way model, we are looking to fund programs beyond our traditional set of Member Agencies, expanding and transitioning to an Impact model. Local agencies who have not received allocated funding from UWGFR are encouraged to submit programs for funding consideration.

RFP Details

Agencies are encouraged to apply for funding up to $50,000 to build capacity or expand existing programs.  Focus areas for funding will be:

  • Youth behavioral health services
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion programming
  • Health, education, & financial stability programs which serve historically excluded populations


Proposals, with accompanying documentation, must be uploaded to United Way of Greater Fall River before 12:01 am on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 via the online portal at     All applications must be submitted through the online portal.

Agencies selected for funding will be notified directly before September 1, 2021.  Funding will be prorated and will run July 1, 2021 until June 30, 2022.
