United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is now accepting funding applications for non-profit organizations for the 2020/2021 funding year. Their funding is available for programs helping their three main focus areas: All That Kids Can Be, Healthy People, Strong Communities, and From Poverty to Possibility. If you are a non-profit organization serving the Haldimand and Norfolk community and would like to apply for funding, please visit the United Way website at www.unitedwayhn.on.ca. Applications for funding will be accepted up until Friday, January 10, 2020 at 4:00 PM.

United Way funding decisions are community driven and community focused. Each year a group of local volunteers representing various sectors in Haldimand and Norfolk form the Allocations Committee. Using their knowledge and first-hand experience, they allocate funds to the programs they feel will meet the most urgent needs of Haldimand and Norfolk residents.

In 2019, United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk supported 15 programs throughout our community serving 15,000+ individuals in need. United Way’s goal for the 2020/2021 funding year is to help 16,000 people in Haldimand and Norfolk. This number includes mental health and wellness supports for 2,000 people, educational programs for 2,500 children, community programs for 3,000 seniors and 8,000 people moving themselves from poverty to possibility.
