United Way GBACC offers two types of funding – the Community Impact Grant and our newly founded Capacity Building Microgrant. Both grant programs require an application for funding, and are competitive grants. All applications will be reviewed and awardees must submit reports for all dollars awarded.

In order to make applications more streamlined and accessible, the Community Impact Grant application and reporting is hosted through a grant database, e-CImpact. If you are a new agency wishing to apply for funding, please email Kaci Pena, Director of Community Impact, to receive access to the database.
