The United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties' Board of Directors voted May 20 to approve $1,85 million in distributions to local community programs and services for the upcoming fiscal year (starting July 1). This allowed for a 1.5 percent increase in allocations to partner agencies over last year's distributions.
The bulk of the funding ($1.467 million) will go to United Way's 34 Partner Agencies to fund 54 programs. The majority of agencies received between a 1.5 percent to 3 percent increase in their funding over last year.
In addition, a one-time limited grant was issued to The Salvation Army to support their Daytona Downtown Streets Teams program.
An additional $384,233 will be distributed to other community programs including 2-1-1/First Call for Help and The Volunteer Center.
