Mini-grant applications through United Way now open

ALPENA, Mich. — Non–profits have the opportunity to get their hands on some funding this spring. The United Way of Northeast Michigan is accepting mini–grant applications. They are due April 5.

Organizations may apply for funds up to $1,000 dollars. It can be used for agencies, community needs and innovative projects.

Fundraiser chairperson for United Way Steve Jakubcin says more non–profits could take advantage of this opportunity to expand their resources and outreach.

“It’s extra money they may not be planning on having,” says Jakubcin. “The United Way does this twice a year: once in the spring, once in the fall. So, they may be able to apply for some money they weren’t counting on.”
