Deadline to apply for United Way funding is today

Posted: Updated:

Today is the deadline for non-profit groups in Western Nebraska to apply for funding for 2014-2015.

United Way of Western Nebraska Executive Director Steph Black says she has already seen several new agencies apply.

She says that last year, they helped out 24 non-profit agencies including CASA of Scotts Bluff County and DOVES. However this year she expects even more groups will turn to the United Way for funding.

"With the economic trend- in not only our community but nationwide- more people are needing more services. And the really good thing is these non-profits are really, truly operating on shoe-string budgets, but they continue to help many more people. And I think we're going to see that continue.

Black says the groups must be a 501(c)(3) organization to be eligible. Click here for more information on how to apply for funding.
