UU Church Seeks Community Outreach Grant Applications

Although COVID and the pandemic may be entering a milder phase, the impact and the needs of our East End community continue to expand in numerous ways.  

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork’s High Impact Community Outreach program is awarding financial assistance to a select group of institutions residing in any of the five townships — East Hampton, Southampton, Shelter Island, Riverhead and Southold — plus the Shinnecock Nation. The UUCSF will consider applications from East End nonprofit groups, grassroots organizations, and national organizations with East End offices.

Applications will be evaluated by the Proposal Assessment Committee, which is appointed by the UUCSF Board.  

2022’s Focus will continue to be on the more marginalized Eastenders, seeking to empower them as well as addressing areas of increasing concerns. 

This year, grants will be awarded to organizations seeking project support that target one of the following at risk populations: LGBTQ, Single Adults, Young Adults and People of Color.

Project needs should address one of the following areas: Equal Access to opportunities, Advocacy, Environmental Justice and Mental Health.  

The HICO program was made possible by the generous bequest of UUCSF member Paul Berman.  To apply for a HICO grant please visit https://uucsf.org/hico-overview/.  Any questions can be directed to the PAC at pac@uucsf.org.     

Applications must be postmarked by April 30, 2022 and a decision will be made by the end of June, 2022
