Nonprofits across the state are welcome to engage in the process to become a qualified partner and seek program support.

 (Statewide NH and Windsor County, Vermont) – Granite United Way has launched its statewide Request for Qualified Partner application and Short Form Request for Proposals (RFP) for 2019. Certified 501(c)3 organizations can apply for qualification status and apply for funding. All grant funding is intended to support programs that enable individuals and communities to Learn, Earn and Be Healthy.

 For comprehensive information on this process and how to apply, visit www.graniteuw.org.

Granite United Way’s application process involves three steps:

1.     The Agency Qualified Partner application requires interested agencies to provide information about the agency’s financial position and governance practices. Qualified partners are included in Granite United Way annual campaign materials, listed in the State Employees Charitable Campaign information, and invited to participate in Granite United Way’s Day of Caring. Qualification is also a requirement for all organizations seeking funding from Granite United Way. This process closes on October 30, 2018.

2.     The Short-Form Application requires applicants seeking funding to respond to 8 narrative questions and to provide a program budget, program deliverables, and program participant count by zip code.

o   For programs seeking $10,000 or less from a GUW region, the Short-Form Application serves as the complete application.

o   For programs seeking more than $10,000 from a GUW region, the Short-Form Application serves as an initial proposal, or “concept paper.” After a review by volunteers, selected applicants will be invited to complete the Long-Form Application. This process closes on October 30, 2018.

3.     Programs seeking more than $10,000 from a GUW region whose Short-Form Application is accepted by volunteers will be invited to complete the Long-Form Application, which is made up of 11 additional narrative questions. These secondary requirements will be collected in January 2019.

 “We welcome our nonprofit partners to begin the agency qualified partner process and the short form application. Each year we are impressed with the quality of these proposals,” said Patrick Tufts, President and CEO of Granite United Way. “Our local volunteers dedicate thousands of hours to reviewing these applications, making the best possible investments with United Way funds.”
