Capital Area United Way Releases 2022 Project-Based Grant Requests for Proposals

Baton Rouge, La. – Capital Area United Way announced a Request for Proposals for its next round of Project-Based Grants. Applications will open Friday, July 15, and close on Friday, August 12, at 12 p.m.

The Project-Based Grant Opportunity provides a mechanism for funding outside the three-year program operations grant cycle, allowing Capital Area United Way to be more responsive to community needs throughout each fiscal year. Funding requests for projects should address a specific problem within Capital Area United Way’s 10-Parish service area in the impact areas of education, income stability, health, or basic needs. A minimum of $500,000 will be awarded for the 2022 Project Grant cycle in amounts ranging from $1,500 to $15,000.

“The Project-Based Grant Opportunities allow Capital Area United Way to partner with organizations outside our traditional three-year funding cycle,” said Edy Addison, Vice President of Community Impact at United Way. “We have been able to be more responsive to our community needs, and these grants are vital to assisting nonprofit and community partners in providing these direct services.”

Organizations may apply for grants to cover projects such as time-limited camps for youth, capital improvements, sponsorships, staff training, and capacity-building diversity, equity, and inclusion work. Projects will be prioritized for the Asset Limited Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE), and rural populations.

Non-profits that are interested in applying for Project-Based Grant Opportunities are invited to visit for more information.
