Investing in Change

Throughout the year, we release strategic funding opportunities and make targeted investments in support of local organizations serving L.A. County. These investments strengthen our partners’ capacity to respond to the needs of their communities and spark innovative ideas for challenging problems facing L.A. residents.

This year, UWGLA plans to make investments across the following categories. 

  • Community Wealth Building
  • Emergency Food and Shelter
  • Homelessness Workforce
  • Older Adult Homelessness Solutions
  • Small Business Mobility
