Community Investment is United Way of Eastern Maine’s competitive grant making process. UWEM funds programs that demonstrate positive changes in the lives of individuals in the areas of Education, Income, and Health. Every three years, UWEM distributes allocations from the Community Fund to health and human service programs throughout our five-county service area; Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Waldo, and Washington Counties.
We have nearly completed our three year funding cycle thanks to nearly 80 community volunteers. Our next funding application will be available in the fall of 2021.
