During Phase 1 Grants, we are working with trusted community partners to identify the most critical immediate basic needs such as food, childcare, and rent/utility assistance. During Phase 2 Grants, we will work on longer term needs with a committee of representatives from each Marshall County city and town helping guide that work. We are utilizing the best resources from both United Way of Marshall County and the Marshall County Community Foundation to continue to support our communities.
