For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties has announced their funding allocations for 2021.
The organization will distribute $489,881 in south Wood County and $34,000 in Adams County, pending a successful fall campaign.
Earlier this year, United Way accepted funding applications for programs that address “financial stability” and “safety net services.” These programs will receive two-year grants for 2021-22.
Education and health programs are currently funded through 2021. Organizations will be able to apply in 2021, for 2022-23 funding.
“We’ve made these promises to our partner programs, now we need the community to help us deliver,” said United Way CEO Tari Jahns. “The dollars we allocate to these programs come from our annual community campaign. That is why it’s important we have a successful campaign, to help fill these needs.”
The 2021-22 allocations will go to the following organizations in south Wood and Adams counties: Childcaring, The Family Center, North Central Community Action Program, Nekoosa School District, FOCUS, and Central Wisconsin Community Action Council.
Funds will also be used for the Volunteer Center, 211, education continuation grants, health continuation grants, and community impact requests.
