The Board of Directors of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is pleased to announce the availability of grant funding for a three-year cycle beginning July 1, 2019. This is a competitive grant process focused on improving key outcomes in the areas of education, health and financial stability. As a result of this process, up to 35, 3-year grants will be awarded to agencies that currently receive United Way grant funding. 
This announcement comes on the heels of the completion of the first part of a two-part grant redesign process undertaken by the staff and board of United Way. As a result of this redesign, applications will only be accepted from 501c3 organizations and public agencies that are currently receiving grant funding. In 2023, the grant process will be revamped again and adjustments made accordingly. 

United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is dedicated to reducing the impact that poverty has on the lives of students, families and communities across Buncombe County. We believe that all of our work is integral toward achieving this focus and that the financial investments we make through our Community Partnerships are a critical part of that strategy. For almost 100 years, we have financially invested in the education, health and financial stability of our community by making grants to high impact nonprofit organizations that serve a wide range of people across our county.
