United Way Announces Third Round of Grants to 60 Local Nonprofits

Today, through The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund, we awarded grants totaling $595,500 to 60 local nonprofits (see full list of recipients below) to ensure North Texas’ most vulnerable populations receive immediate assistance and ongoing support.

Since launching the fund in mid-March, United Way has granted over $2 million to 144 organizations working on the front lines to provide vital resources for our North Texas community. We have partnered with community leaders, the City of Dallas, school districts and our 180+ service providers to identify resource and service gaps and plan for long-term recovery—and will continue to provide weekly funding recommendations to allocate grants and adapt to the evolving needs of the community.

The 60 newest grant recipients are addressing the urgent needs of North Texans most affected by the coronavirus pandemic, including access to food, shelter, and healthcare, and emergency financial assistance in response to job/income loss. Many organizations support the educational and mental health needs of children and adults across North Texas as well.

We continue to receive a high volume of applications via North Texas Cares and anticipate community needs will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Collectively, the North Texas Cares partners have granted more than $7.6 million to nonprofits providing coronavirus response and recovery support to our community.

With the generosity of local corporations and philanthropic partners, United Way has been able to quickly provide critical funding to local nonprofit organizations. As federal CARES Act funding and city and county public resources flow into the areas of immediate need, United Way will transition funding to support longer-term recovery efforts and continue our focus on education, income, and health.

Support for recovery work will be crucial in the aftermath of this public health and economic crisis. United Way of Metropolitan Dallas remains steadfast in our commitment to ensure all North Texans have the opportunity to meet their full potential.

We hope you will join us in supporting our North Texas community through a contribution to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund.

About North Texas Cares

United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, Communities Foundation of Texas, and The Dallas Foundation, joined by nearly two dozen philanthropic funding organizations, launched North Texas Cares, which enables local nonprofits to ask for emergency financial help from all participating organizations through a streamlined online grant application.

The magnitude of this pandemic calls for innovation and proactive, strategic collaboration—at a rapid pace. North Texas Cares is the social impact community’s collective response to addressing both immediate and long-term needs of our most vulnerable populations.

Together we are enabling efficient and timely access to philanthropic dollars, ensuring those resources reach the individuals and families most in need, without placing an undue burden on the nonprofit organizations providing them.
