The Community Foundation and United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties are granting $965,600 — $1,931,200 for a two-year cycle — to the community through The United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties Community Impact Grant.
Twenty-five programs from 19 nonprofits serving Volusia and Flagler counties in the areas of education, financial stability and health are being awarded the two-year grants.
Funding was allocated to all programs that met the eligibility criteria and the required scoring threshold.
This cycle began in September 2022.
“The pool of applicants was extremely competitive this cycle,” said Courtney Edgcomb, president and CEO of the Community Foundation and United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties.
Of the $965,600 awarded each year, 25% ($245,000) is earmarked for Flagler-specific programs, 37% ($352,500) for Volusia-specific programs and 38% ($368,100) for dual-county benefit.
Education and health programs received 33% of the funding ($314,500 and $325,100 respectively), and financial stability received 34% ($326,000).
