Request for Proposals

Current Funding Opportunities


Strong Foundations:

The family is at the center of a child's development. Experiences at home are the basis for future learning, social skills, and health. To support healthy development in the earliest year, it is important that parents have the resources, knowledge, and skills to provide a strong foundation for their child's lifelong wellbeing.
United Way sees a particular need in Olmsted County to support the healthy development of our youngest residents. We are issuing this Request for Proposals to establish partnership and offer support for programs that improve physical, mental, or behavioral health outcomes of children from the prenatal period to age three by working with parents to increase household stability.
