NEED HELP? 2-1-1 IS HERE

Spring 2022 Asset Funding Opportunity

United Way of Greater St. Louis is now accepting grant applications from non-profit organizations to take part in the Spring 2022 ASSET program, which can be delivered online or in-person – following CDC guidelines.

 

The ASSET program is focused on financial education and asset building for low-income families with children. It is designed to promote family financial economic mobility and help address systemic economic and racial disparities. The ASSET program is delivered in partnership with United Way of Greater St. Louis staff and volunteer financial coaches and is made possible through a generous donation from Stifel Bank & Trust.

 

To apply, agencies must be nonprofit organizations that serve low-income families with children at a social service agency, Head Start, and/or non-profit childcare center, in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Franklin County, Jefferson County, Lincoln County, St. Charles County, or Warren County.

 

Successful organization applicants will receive a program grant of up to $5,000. The grant is intended to fund staff and program supports to help clients overcome obstacles to participation (technology, education incentives, or – for those providing in-person classes – a light dinner and/or snacks, transportation, and childcare).

 

Agencies interested in applying for funds must complete the application online or email the application along with all required attachments to mariah.byrne@stl.unitedway.org by Friday, February 18, 2022 at 5:00 pm. Late and incomplete applications will not be considered. For more information on the program, please click here.

 

A Grant Learning Session for this opportunity will be held on Wednesday, February 2 from 1:00-2:30 pm online. Registration is available by completing this form.

 

Agencies will be notified by Friday, February 25, 2022 of funding decisions. For questions, please contact Mariah Byrne at mariah.byrne@stl.unitedway.org or 314-539-4028.
