We are proud to partner with the Cape and Islands United Way to provide critical assistance to those most in need,” said William Ciocca, Community and Customer Manager for National Grid.

Much like they did in 2022-2023, the United Way grants from $10,000 to $30,000, will be awarded to Cape, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard nonprofits working to keep residents warm this winter.

All regional nonprofits are encouraged to apply and the Cape & Islands United Way’s streamlined grant application portal will be open at the end of the year.
