PACT United Grant Awards

United Way of Acadiana is inviting organizations to be part of the PACT (Plan of Action for Community Transformation) in 2018!

On Wednesday, November 1, organizations in Acadia, Lafayette, St. Martin and Vermilion parishes may begin submitting PACT grant Request for Proposals (RFP) applications.

In support of the PACT, which invests donations in three different focus areas, United Way of Acadiana will accept proposals from organizations within its service area that address the following:

·       Education: Children achieve their potential through a dynamic array of educational opportunities

·       Earnings: Families gain income and financial tools needed to thrive

·       Essentials: People’s basic needs are secured in times of disaster or crisis

Organizations submitting a proposal must have an IRS 501(c)3 tax-exempt status public entity, outline programs that work with target populations to achieve identified long-term goals and be able to demonstrate the ability to implement and evaluate programmatic outcomes from 2018-2020.

All interested applicants can access and complete the PACT Grant RFP and application at our Apricot site, ctk.apricot.info.
