United Way of Acadiana commits $1,347,500 to Community Programs

LAFAYETTE - United Way of Acadiana has confirmed plans to invest $1,347,500 in community programs hosted by regional nonprofits during 2013. As a result of the PACT United Grant process, a community-wide effort focused on education, earnings and essentials, 44 programs are receiving competitive grant awards.


United Way of Acadiana will provide these funds to 26 organizations to help more children graduate from high school, build financial stability in hard working families and help neighbors meet their own basic needs.


"The strategies and goals of the PACT United require a generation of effort, as well as innovative partnerships and collaborations," explained Margaret Trahan, President/CEO United Way of Acadiana. "We are grateful for these frontline partners who help tackle the tough issues that hold back the success of our children and the prosperity of our families. We are confident that the 44 programs earning awards move area communities in the right direction."

All 501(c)3 organizations will have the next opportunity to apply for a PACT United Grant in the summer of 2013.
