Public Policy Work

United Way knows that real and sustained change in community conditions requires more than money. That’s why our Public Policy staff works to educate and engage Members of Congress, the Administration, and other policymakers about the goals and priorities of the United Way movement and our commitment to education, financial stability, nonprofit sector strengthening, and health-related issues.
