Through generous donations, the United Way of Paducah-McCracken County along with partners from the Salvation Army, Family Service Society, the City of Paducah and Paducah Cooperative Ministry, are able to offer Necessity Grants to people in our community. The grants are available to help with immediate needs of local families who have been recently furloughed or lost income due to COVID-19 in Paducah-McCracken County. The funds will be distributed in the form of a gift card and intended for groceries, gas and similar necessities. Grants will be awarded in the amount of $250-$500 depending on household size and financial need. Please see the form below if you are interested in applying for the grant.
We will continue to raise funds and as long as we have money available, we will disperse to those in need. To GIVE, click here.
