Another way United Way of Greater Houston invests in our community is through grants to meet specific needs and fuel special projects.
Community Building Grants
Community-building is a vital part of United Way of Greater Houston’s mission. To support this important work, United Way has created a fund that is available to community groups for innovative health and human service projects. Grants from $1,000 to $10,000 provide funding for short-term projects or one-time expenses that will have a positive impact in the community. Learn more.
United Way’s Veterans Initiative supports our veterans and their families with job readiness, financial education, coaching and counseling, health care, basic needs assistance, the bringing together of organizations to exchange information and solve issues facing veterans, and providing dedicated veterans specialists through the 2-1-1 Texas/United Way HELPLINE. As part of that work, we have created specific grants for organizations that serve veterans.
