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.


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.



The United Way of Tarrant County (UWTC) is now soliciting proposals for funding to address the ongoing critical needs among our community during the 2022-2023 program year.
