2018-2019 Funding

United Way of Laramie County, the City of Cheyenne and Laramie County are looking for proposals from community partners for the 2018-2019 funding cycle. Funded programs will help move our community towards being the 5th healthiest County in Wyoming by 2025 as identified in the Robert Wood Johnson Health Rankings and Roadmaps program. Using sustainable programming, the goal is to focus resources on improving graduation rates, addressing homelessness, maintaining our community's safety net and reducing the number of students using free and reduced lunch as an indicator of moving families out of poverty. It is our intent to use education, income and health programs to make Laramie County a community that helps its children and youth achieve their full potential while giving families, individuals and seniors the ability to achieve greater financial stability, adequate mobility and timely access to health care services.
The funding process will be completed in two steps:

  • A letter of intent to apply for funding is due electronically by February 1, 2017 by 5:00 p.m.
  • Agencies submitting a letter of intent are then expected to complete the full application due electronically by March 1, 2017 by 5:00 p.m.

United Way of Laramie County will offer three informational sessions on the web based RFP process, December 6th, 8th and 13th from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the United Way office, 1007 E Lincolnway.
