This is a two-year funding process and with this funding, you will become one of the United Way of PEI’s funded partners for two years. This year we are offering two streams of funding, one application is for project funding, and we are piloting an application for operational funding at an organizational level. To apply for the operational funding stream, the organization must have been a funded partner of the United Way of PEI during the last 5 years. These agencies include:
If you fit the criteria for applying for this grant and have not been a funded partner of ours in the last 5 years, please fill out the project-based funding application. You will be prompted during the online application form. Agencies that have been a UWPEI funded partner in the last five years can apply for both streams of funding (project and operational). If you apply for operational funding and the committee does not think it is a match, a United Way of PEI staff will connect with you to see if you apply for project funding.
The maximum amount awarded for project funding is $50,000 per year for two years. The maximum amount awarded for operational funding is $50,000 per year for two years. This round of Community Investment Grants will begin in April 2024 and end in March 2026.
