The United Way of the Tri-Valley Area seeks applications to its Very Basics Fund by Tuesday, April 30. The next opportunity for applications will be in October.

United Way and other area nonprofits are working to meet the short- and long-term needs of individuals and families in the community.

Through United Way’s Very Basics Fund, it focuses on helping those struggling with the rising costs of the essentials. Increased food prices, high heating costs, and the potential risk of not being able to pay housing, utility, and food bills due to financial strains are a reality.

Organizations that serve populations in need every day are finding themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for those services. United Way of the Tri-Valley Area looks to help with the ongoing basic needs of the Greater Franklin County residents.

United Way encourages non-profits like schools, municipalities, and faith-based organizations to apply.

Applicants may apply for up to $5,000. For more information or to apply visit
