While United Way has been a proud sponsor of National Night Out since 2004, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are facing as a community, United Way is shifting its 2020 mini-grant process from supporting National Night Out events to supporting neighborhood organizations interested in responding to the needs that have been identified in their communities as a result of COVID-19.
To do this, United Way is partnering with the Neighborhood Resource Organization to launch a Neighborhood Organization Community Impact Mini-Grant Process by supporting the organizations focused on building stronger neighborhoods in Erie County.
As a result of a survey completed by local neighborhood organizations, the following funding priorities have been identified. Please note that if you have a priority you feel was not included in the list below, you can contact United Way of Erie County to share your suggestions for review.
The Neighborhood Resource Organization is a service agency created to provide resources, support and technical assistance to neighborhood groups throughout Erie County. This organization is committed to the ongoing fight against Community Disorganization. It does not have a yearly fee or membership. It is a service agency that offers regular trainings, assists with funding applications, notifies groups of funding opportunities, researches and communicates best practice information, educates on services available, connects groups with key community partners as well as each other, and serves as a fiscal agent for grant funds to individual neighborhood groups. These services are available to any neighborhood group that is organized or that wishes to organize and desires to utilize the services.
For more information, please contact John Villa, the Neighborhood Resource Organization Outreach Coordinator (814) 572-0755.
