Application and Resources


United Way Halton & Hamilton’s Feed Grant stream provides three-year, program-based funding for established programs that align with United Way’s Focus Areas and Investment Priorities. Feed Grants compose the largest funding stream within the UWHH Investment Framework, complemented by one-year Seed Grants, focused on new and innovative projects, and five-year Root Grants, supporting programming as well as foundational operating needs.   

 We’re excited to announce that applications for the United Way Halton and Hamilton Feed Grant are now officially open! Our Feed Grant stream stands as a testament to our commitment towards fortifying programs that resonate with our Focus Areas and Investment Priorities.

  • Open to registered charities, but can represent non-profits, (with a fiscal sponsor) 
  • Funding up to $250,000 per agency. 
  • Application for more than 1 program is open.

*A Note of Local Love: As a result of opening the Feed Grant to new programs, some of the programs currently funded through the Feed stream may experience a change in the funding they receive from United Way. We understand this can present challenges. Our decision to hold an open call aligns with our commitment to equitably support the local social service network and provide new opportunities. In no way do these decisions reflect that one program is less valued than another. We revere all of those doing the critical work of lifting our community, making it a place where everyone can thrive.
