CIT Purpose & Member Profile

The CIT actively participates in United Way of Rome & Floyd County’s (UWRF) efforts to identify and achieve measurable outcomes addressing Rome & Floyd County’s most critical issues in the areas of Education, Health, and Financial Stability. The CIT evaluates all Community Impact Grant applications and programs. It is comprised of engaged and knowledgeable volunteer community members who live and work in Rome & Floyd County and are knowledgeable about the needs of the communities we serve. CIT Members have strong communication skills, a high level of integrity and the ability to place community interest above self-interest.

CIT members are recruited from across Rome and Floyd County to ensure a thorough understanding of local needs and representation from all communities served by UWRF. CIT members are thoroughly vetted for any conflicts of interest and may not be employed by or hold a leadership position with any organization or program seeking UWRF funding. Each CIT member spends time vetting and identifying the programs that best align with our work in Education, Health, & Financial Stability. A list of each campaign’s CIT members will be made public on the UWRF website.
