United Way announces Venture Grant opportunity

United Way of Blount County is accepting 2010 Venture Grant applications for programs addressing financial stability.

Venture Grants are a one year/one time funding opportunity. Additionally, funding is available to address transportation for at-risk dialysis patients.

In order to request funding in either area, a representative from the applying program must attend a mandatory question and answer session on Tuesday, March 16. A session on financial stability will meet at 8 a.m., and a session on transportation will meet at 3 p.m.

Both sessions will meet at the United Way offices, 1615 East Broadway, in Maryville. The session will address how to apply, program specifics, and timeline. Grants for up to $25,000 will be considered.

All applying agencies must provide proof of 501c3 status, serve the residents of Blount County and have been in business for at least one year.

For more information, contact Michelle Hankes at mhankes@unitedwayblount.org or Jean Williamson at jwilliamson@unitedwayblount.org or call 865-982-2251.
