Since the adoption of the most recent Community Assessment in 2019, United Way of Tarrant County has allocated nearly $9 million in funding to partners in the community to address the following key social issues: basic needs and financial stability; education/workforce; mental, emotional and physical health; affordable housing/homelessness; and transportation.

Community, corporate, government and foundation donations to United Way of Tarrant County make it possible for the organization to invest resources toward our community’s most pressing issues.

For 2020-21, community investments totaled over $4.1 million which included $2.3 million for Safety Net programs, which constitute a network of services offered to the community through the United Way of Tarrant County’s system of partners; $1.4 million for Emergency Relief during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic focused on basic needs; more than $377,000 in funding through the Veterans Fund, which supports military service members and their families; and more than $45,000 to Women United programs, which are focused on women and girls.

ALLOCATIONS

Our allocations process begins with announcing our Requests For Proposals (RFPs) via email and social media encouraging organizations to visit our website to download and apply. If appropriate, a bidder’s conference is held to inform applicants and address any questions before the completion of the proposal. Responses are considered and ranked by a volunteer Review Panel. The panel’s recommendations move forward to the Community Investment Cabinet for its approval for funding. The United Way Board of Directors then provides final approval.
