In response to the ongoing needs created by the pandemic, United Way of Racine County (UWRC) has launched new opportunities for local nonprofits to request support and for community members to get involved. Through the UWRC COVID Relief project, local nonprofits can apply for funding to help navigate programming and other essential operations throughout the pandemic.
These efforts are the second phase of pandemic response efforts led by United Way of Racine County. For more information about funding priorities, non-allowable expenses, and application and reporting requirements, see the For Nonprofits tab below.
