We are excited to announce the release of the RFP for our Children, Youth, and their Families Grant Program!


Letter of Intent Preview

Our goal is to nurture the healthy growth, development, and general well-being of children, youth, and families by funding a diverse range of programs that address prevention, crisis response, and/or stabilization. Three-year, competitive grants are available to non-profit organizations serving Hampshire County, with the exceptions of South Hadley and Granby. To ensure accountability and transparency, all grant applications will be reviewed by a team of community volunteers.

Mandatory Grant Information Sessions

UWHC requires all applicants to attend one of two information sessions prior to submitting a letter of intent. You must attend in order to be eligible to apply. This session will cover information beyond what is included in this request for proposals. You will not be given information on how to apply online using e-CImpact, our new partner database without attending one of these sessions. In determining who will represent your agency at the session, please consider a person/people with knowledge of the particular program you wish to propose, decision-making authority, and direct involvement in the writing of the application.


  • January 9, 2019 (Wed) from 9am to 11am
  • January 10, 2019 (Thu) from 2pm to 4pm


  • Union Station - Blue Goose Room, 125 Pleasant St, Northampton, MA 01060

 RSVP by January 4th, 2019

  • Please include the agency name, names of attendees, preferred email address for confirmation, phone number, and preferred session date. Up to three individuals may attend from each agency.

Cancellation: If a session needs to be cancelled for any reason, an email will be sent to all attendees with new scheduling information. In case of snow or inclement weather, we will follow the Northampton public school system. If they are closed or, in the case of the morning session on January 9th, delayed, the information session for that day is canceled and we will reschedule for a later date.
