Another way United Way of Greater Houston invests in our community is through grants to meet specific needs and fuel special projects.

Special Grants

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.

Veterans Grants
United Way MISSION UNITED supports our veterans and their families with a coordinated network to help with job readiness, financial education, coaching and counseling, health care, basic needs assistance, and more. Our 211 Texas/United Way HELPLINE is the entry point for MISSION UNITED. United Way of Greater Houston regularly brings together organizations that serve veterans to exchange information, collaborate, and solve issues facing veterans.As part of that work, we have created specific grants for organizations that serve veterans.
