The Forum did not meet Tuesday and will not meet May 12.
United Way announced one-year grant awards in the $5,000-$25,000 range to organizations with budgets under $250,000. Letter of interest for Unite Charlotte, due June 1, is available here. Letter of interest for United Neighborhoods, due May 11, is available here. General info here and here.
Steve Johnston, who has compiled these Announcements since 2004, suspects the Announcements may need to change to be more useful to readers during this period of digital-only events and lots of distractions from the public policy issues the Forum has regularly focused on. If you have requests, suggestions or observations, please send Steve an e-mail.
