Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations to provide critical human services to local residents in eligible areas. Funding is intended for activities that promote the security, health, safety, and independence of underserved members of the community. The purpose of the county’s nonprofit grant program is to strengthen the county’s coordination and collaboration with nonprofit partners, and ensure opportunities for local funds to be leveraged in the most effective manner for core safety net services that assist vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families.

Funding will be focused on services in the following areas of need:

Prevention and Self-sufficiency: Services focused on assisting individuals and families in becoming and/or remaining independent and stable, and providing tools, skills,
strategies, and resources to individuals and families.

Crisis Intervention and Diversion: Services provided to individuals and families in crisis to overcome immediate problems, and reduce or prevent further penetration to more
restrictive and expensive higher level services.

Long-term Support: Services that focus on assisting individuals who have continuing, longterm support needs to remain healthy, safe, and independent in the community.

Improved Quality of Human Services: Services and opportunities provided to individuals, organizations, and communities that enhance the quality, accessibility, accountability and coordination of services provided by community organizations.
