United Midcoast Charities will begin accepting grant applications for the organization’s 2019 grant cycle Monday, Feb. 4. The deadline for all grant applications is Tuesday, March 5. Application information, eligibility requirements, sample qualified programs and the grant cycle schedule can be found at unitedmidcoastcharities.org.

United Midcoast Charities’ annual competitive grant program assists a wide range of nonprofit agencies that provide programming aimed at promoting the welfare of residents of Knox and Waldo counties, within UMC’s focus areas of food, housing, health and safety, and economic security. UMC’s preference and history has been in funding projects or organizations whose main goal is to aid low income residents.

UMC encourages new applicants or those with new proposals or questions to speak with Executive Director Megan Williams. All submissions must be made through the online application.

Applicants who lack access to a computer or internet can reserve a time to use the in-office computer station for grant submission. Call UMC at 236-2299.
