Loudoun County has allocated $2.3 million to 53 local nonprofit and faith-based organizations that provide services to the community and have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The allocation is part of the federal funding made available to the county through the Commonwealth of Virginia from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Following approval of the funding program by the Board of Supervisors in May 2020, the county accepted requests in June from local organizations seeking funding for programs in one of four categories: emergency food assistance, expansion of services due to COVID-19, interruption of services due to the pandemic; and a combination of expanded services and emergency food assistance.
The awards are as follows:
Food Assistance (Total: $166,650)
Food Assistance and Service Expansion (Total: $948,176)
Service Expansion (Total: $845,737.16)
Service Interruption (Total: $350,728.37)
In addition to support for nonprofit and faith-based organizations, the county has allocated CARES Act funding to help support businesses and the incorporated towns to help offset expenses related to the coronavirus pandemic response and its economic impacts.
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
Residents with questions about COVID-19 may call the Loudoun County Health Department’s information line, 703-737-8300, or send an email.
