Funding Opportunities

CAUW Project-Based Opportunity

Capital Area United Way’s Project-Based Grant Opportunity is a mechanism for funding outside of the existing three year program operations grant cycle, allowing for CAUW to be more responsive to community needs throughout each fiscal year. 

We are excited to announce that applications for Spring 2020 Project-Based Grant Opportunities are NOW OPEN!

Applications will be accepted beginning Tuesday, January 14, 2020 until Friday, February 14, 2020 at 5 p.m. It may take up to 12 weeks for grant notifications following the deadline. 

There will be two Information and Technical Assistance Sessions at Capital Area United Way's office located at 700 Laurel Street in downtown Baton Rouge. The session dates and times are as follows: 

  • Tuesday, January 21 from 2 -4 p.m.

  • Tuesday, January 28 from 2- 4 p.m.

Please note all funding decisions are driven by community volunteers through a formal review process in collaboration with CAUW Impact Cabinet, Board of Directors and staff.
