United Way of Navarro County (UWNC) has the responsibility to our community and to our donors to identify and address the community’s most critical needs. To that end, UWNC conducted a Navarro County Community Needs Assessment in conjunction with UT Arlington School of Social Work. The following have been identified as areas of concern:
- Meeting Basic Needs
- Developing Children and Youth
- Strengthening Families
- Caring for People in Crisis
Please see the Community Assessment reports to identify specific needs within these broad categories. Both the Brief Summary of Findings and the full Final Report are available at the web site at www.unitedwayofnavarrocounty.com. Printed Brief Summary reports are also available at our office.
UWNC seeks to fund Programs that address the most critical needs in the community. Funded Programs should achieve measurable results and meaningful outcomes for our citizens. Therefore, funding priority will be given to Programs that meet the most critical needs. Additionally, UWNC seeks to fund Programs that target addressing root causes, rather than symptoms, of identified needs. For 2019, each agency must complete a separate Program Funding Proposal for each Program for which funding is requested.

2019 Agency Reporting Requirements
United Way of Navarro County Partner Agencies are asked to adhere to the following reporting requirements during the 2018 funding year:
- Maintain complete and accurate records, both financial and service, documenting all revenues and expenditures;
- Allow the United Way of Navarro County the right to review Agency books and records;
- Submit quarterly reports the last working day of the month in April, July, October, and January. Late or incomplete reports may affect 2018 funding;

- Sign and submit Agency Acceptance of Allocation form and Counterterrorism Compliance by September 30, 2016. (Counterterrorism Compliance form per Executive Order 13224, as amended by the Patriot Act).
Agencies must agree to the following blackout policy: “In order to maintain the integrity of the United Way of Navarro County (UWNC) campaign, member agencies shall refrain from solicitation of funds or any attempt to raise money during the “Blackout Period” of September 1st to December 1st in order to minimize competition with the annual United Way appeal. Solicitation of funds includes but is not limited to any events, mailings, promotions, concerts, tournaments, dinners, or galas that are specifically designed to raise funds for the member agency.”
Any such actions during the Blackout Period shall be considered a violation of the Member Agency’s Reporting Requirements and can result in being disqualified from obtaining funds, and those actions will be taken into consideration in future funding.
Reasons for exceptions are limited to national fundraisers that agencies must participate in to comply with their membership requirements (e.g. Girl Scout cookie sale, Boy Scout popcorn and wreath sale, Salvation Army bell ringers).” Exceptions to the blackout period will require United Way Board of Directors’ approval.
