The High Country United Way is now accepting applications for programs for the fiscal year 2016-2017. We seek proposals that meet the goals and strategies identified by our Community Impact Visioning Councils as well as those that continue to meet basic and emergency needs.

Deadline for submitting applications to renew existing programs is April 20, 2016. The deadline for submitting applications for new programs is May 6, 2016. Eligible, interested agencies are invited to a meeting on April 11, 2016 at the Skyline/Skybest building in Foscoe in their large meeting room. The purposes of this meeting are to explain HCUW’s goals for the 2016-2017 programs, distribute information and applications, explain the process, and answer questions.

High Country United Way continues to support programs that help meet basic and emergency human needs plus those that address underlying causes of serious problems within our communities. To determine those underlying causes and establish strategies to address them we adopted the Community Impact Approach being used by United Ways across the country. Using this process we soght input from informed citizens in Avery and Watauga counties through Visioning Councils in the areas of Education, Health, and Income Stabilization. From the work of those Councils the list of goals/visions for improving community conditions in the High Country and the strategies to achieve them were developed.

Information on how to apply, the 2016-2017 High Country United Way funding priorities, as well as applications and RFP forms are available on the High Country United Way website; www.highcountryunitedway.org.
