Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations and local government agencies for programs that benefit low-to-moderate income families and individuals in eligible regions. Funding is intended for programs in the areas of affordable housing, increasing access to health services, addressing service barriers, increasing earnings, and educational attainment. Grants should benefit residents of the cities of Staunton and Waynesboro and Augusta County.

Applications should address the goals and strategies identified in the FY2020 – 2024 Strategic Plan. Proposed programs/services must principally benefit low- and moderate-income individuals and families. 

Over the next five years CAPSAW will implement the following strategies to address the identified priority areas:
  • Provide students of all ages with the tools needed to complete the post-secondary path of their choosing.
  • Connect community college, training and certification programs, and workforce development partnerships to bring job seekers and employers together.
  • Provide whole family programming; delivering services and tracking outcomes to adults and children simultaneously.
  • Focus on collective impact strategies around the identified priority areas.
  • Create and support peer and family networks, mentorship programs, and learning opportunities.
  • Provide accessible information to create an informed community.


  • Goal 1: Individuals and families with low incomes are stable and achieve economic security.
  • Goal 2: Places where low-income people live are healthy and offer economic opportunity.
  • Goal 3: People with low incomes are engaged and active in building opportunities.
The income limits for Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funding are included within the application. Partner agencies will receive updated current-year income limits when they are released and are required to follow them. Income eligible refers to those individuals and families making at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Line. Eligibility may be extended to those at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line at the discretion of CAPSAW staff.
Activities must be delivered from a location that is accessible to all potential beneficiaries or an alternative means of service delivery to people with disabilities must be identified.
Reimbursable costs include staff salaries, utilities, project supplies and other resources used within the contract period.
