Eligible nonprofit organizations serving Loudoun County are encouraged to apply for local grant funding through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) 2024 Virginia Housing Trust Fund – Homeless Reduction Grant.

The Underserved Population Innovation Project targets members of an underserved population that are experiencing homelessness.
