One of United Way's focus areas is education and helping children achieve their potential.  In keeping with this focus, the United Way board granted a $12,000 award to the school system over a two year period from the Habitat for Humanity funds.  These funds are to be utilized in conjunction with the McKinney-Vento Homeless grant.
