United Way of Central New York has approved 46 local non-profit agencies to submit applications for United Way funding for the 2014-17 cycle. The Board of Directors voted approval at the Oct. 25 board meeting, after months of review by a team of volunteers charged with evaluating each proposal request. In the previous cycle (2011-14) 42 agencies were approved. “With fewer program funding sources available to non-profits compared to the last funding cycle, we have seen an increase in agencies applying for United Way dollars, making this a very competitive process.” said United Way of CNY President Frank Lazarski.
Every three years, human service agencies in Onondaga County have the opportunity to apply for funding from the United Way of Central New York to support quality programs that provide essential services to assist populations in need. The Community Program Fund will provide multi-year support to approved programs for the period July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2017.
