United Way of Olmsted County’s board of directors recently approved grants to improve the health, education, and financial stability of individuals and families in Olmsted County.
From July 2022- June 2023, United Way will invest $1,069,000 in grants to programs and agencies that support neighborhood vitality, food security, housing stability, early childhood education, social connectedness, independent living, and equitable communities.
Together, the 31 programs provide hot meals, rent assistance, early learning scholarships, senior independence services, disability support services, peer support for addiction recovery, youth programming, and more.
This will be the first year of funding for 5 of the programs; others are a continuation of multi-year commitments.
