United Way of Tarrant County’s KERNEL social innovation applications due Aug. 10

KERNEL, a program established in 2016 by the United Way of Tarrant County, fosters social innovation within Tarrant County and provides resources and seed funding for organizations and programs that comprise a combination of social impact, a sustainable revenue model, and an innovative approach to solving the social challenges in our community.

The KERNEL program’s primary purpose is encouraging social innovation, connecting with community initiatives to nurture great ideas and making significant changes in key community challenges. By working with a cross-sector of people, organizations, nonprofits, for-profits and entrepreneurs to solve problems, we believe KERNEL can uncover world-changing ideas and help bring them to life.
