The local United Way organization said in its announcement that it received 102 applications for funding this year and had a team of more than 40 volunteers evaluate them.
“The 48 community programs receiving funding will partner with United Way to provide safe homes free of child abuse, neglect and domestic violence, increase academic success for youth and young adults, support safety-net programs, and create pathways to family-wage jobs and economic success, to name a few examples,” the organization said in its announcement.
