United Way of Indian River County will begin accepting Letters of Intent beginning October 26, 2023 in our Financial Stability and Health Impact Areas through the Community Impact Fund . The Community Impact Fund was established to invest in high-performing nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services aligned with our strategic priority Impact Areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health. Grant funding recipients help to improve community conditions across our county.

UWIRC functions on a 2-year funding cycle and is currently open to organizations providing services to Indian River County residents and must measure participant progress based on outcomes and indicators established by UWIRC Priority Areas:

Financial Stability

  • Stabilization/Manageable Expenses – Individuals have the financial resources and assets to avoid a financial crisis.
