Improving Lives In Our Community

Community Solutions is the name given to the way United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties work is prioritized. We embrace the big picture in health and human services to improve lives right here in our local community. Community leaders identified four priority areas of focus. These are education, health, safety, and self-sufficiency.


United Way also leads three community-wide initiatives: Our Babies Can't Wait, Prepared By 20, and Attendance Matters.


Community Solutions Investment Funding currently supports 29 programs through 18 agencies. These programs provide local services to our community members. The funding process application cycle is every two year. The next funding cycle will be for July 2016 - June 2018. The application process will open in January 2016.
