The Citizen Review Process


  • Local non-profit health and human care agencies submit funding requests and supporting documentation for specific programs.
  • Each agency appears before panels of community volunteers:
    • To highlight the program for which they are requesting funding.
    • To answer any questions volunteers may have.

  • Panels decide if they wish to visit any agencies and schedule those visits: 
    • To clarify the intent of the program for which the agency is requesting funding.
    • To get more in-depth conversation and answers to questions than the presentation format allows. 
  • Each panel meets through the process to determine recommendations for program grants along with comments/recommendations for each agency.
  • The United Way Board of Directors has final approval of grants during the January meeting each year. The Citizen Review Committee Chair presents the CRC report and answers questions.
