Grant Writing

Beginning in 2016, the United Way’s Grant Writing Initiative was developed to support grant procurement for both United Way initiatives and community-based collaborations. During the last 7 years, Travis Hutzell, the United Way’s Grant and Resource Development Director, has helped secure more than $12.8 million in grant funding, which has largely benefited vital community-based efforts in both Cambria and Somerset Counties. The following table illustrates the progress that has been made throughout the course of the 2021-2022 grant writing cycle. (Note: Does not reflect outstanding grant applications that may be awarded by the end of the fiscal year.)
