GRANTS

United Way of Greater Greensboro Joseph M. Bryan Human Services Grant

The Joseph M. Bryan Foundation established the grant program in 1996 to recognize Bryan’s lifelong commitment to the welfare of the Greensboro community. The Bryan Grants are awarded to human service programs in the form of stabilization Grants. These funds can be extended to a program that has been operating and demonstrating success in the community for a limited number of years and is in need of strengthening the service offered and the outcomes achieved.  These grants offer awards of up to $30,000.

United Way of Greater Greensboro Kathleen and Joseph Bryan Community Enrichment and Venture Grant (CEVG)

CEVG began in 1967 to promote the improvement of human services delivery through innovative programs. The name was changed to the Kathleen and Joseph M. Bryan Community Enrichment and Venture Grant Program to acknowledge the Bryans’ generous support through the years.

CEVG awards up to $15,000 and can be used for the following purposes:
1. Seed money to provide short- term support for start up, development and stabilization of new and innovative programs that provide a service currently unavailable in the Greater Greensboro community.  (A program operating for less than 2 years is considered “new.”)
2. System building grants that strengthen the capacity of existing agencies to deliver a particular program;
3. Support to redirect agencies to more effectively address areas of need.

FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Program Grant

United Way is the administrator of the FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Program Grant which is open to any nonprofit in High Point City, Guilford and Davidson counties.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program was established on March 24, 1983, with the signing of the “Jobs Stimulus Bill,” Public Law 98-8. That legislation created a National Board, chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that consisted of representatives of the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities USA, The Jewish Federations of North America, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, The Salvation Army and United Way Worldwide.

The EFSP was authorized under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (P.L. 100-77 signed into law on July 24, 1987, since renamed the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and subsequently reauthorized under P.L. 100-628, signed into law on November 7, 1988). Since 1983, in its 29-year history, the EFSP will have distributed $3.8 billion to over 14,000 human service agencies in more than 2,500 communities across the country through this collaborative effort between the private and public sectors.
