“The Board of Supervisors has approved changes to improve our grant application process, providing additional transparency and consistency, giving nonprofit applicants additional guidance and support, and increasing accountability for county funds,” said Assistant County Administrator Valmarie Turner. “The process also is beginning earlier than in past years, providing nonprofits with advanced notification of the funding awards before the start of their fiscal year.”

Tax-exempt, private, nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations that provide human services to Loudoun County residents in the areas of need identified and approved by the Board for FY 2019 are eligible to apply for grants. The areas of need and the anticipated outcomes are:
