Agency Application

United Way of North Idaho is currently accepting Letters of Interest for the Community Care Fund. 

The 2023-2024 Community Care Fund is open July 5 to September 30. In order to submit a full application, an organization must first complete and submit a Letter of Interest by July 30. This form should take about 10 minutes to complete and asks for basic program information so the Impact team can decide if the Community Care Fund is a good fit. 

Step 1: Determine which impact area most closely aligns with the program for which you are seeking funding. Program examples can be viewed by clicking the icons of each impact area. Program examples are provided to help agencies identify which impact area a program will fit; these are common examples of programs but are by no means comprehensive. If you are unsure about which impact area to select for your program, please contact us for guidance.
