The United Way of Wayne and Holmes Counties is a human service organization that has provided one AFI grant since 2009, with the objectives of increasing the amount of IDA savings participants use for asset purchases, the number of participants who withdraw funds from their IDA for asset purchases, and the ratio of the amount of earned income participants save in their IDAs to the cost of project services supported with Federal AFI grant funds.
The United Way emphasizes homeownership, postsecondary education, and business capitalization, with the goals of improving financial management skills, increasing savings, and building wealth.
Partners for the organization include Bridges of Hope, Wayne County Habitat for Humanity, and Wayne Metropolitan Housing Authority, all providing program support.
