Loudoun County’s grant application process for human service nonprofit organizations is underway with the posting of the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 2022) Human Service Nonprofit Grant Application at loudoun.gov/nonprofitgrants.
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 of Supervisors for FY 2022 are eligible to apply for grants. The areas of need and the anticipated outcomes are:
- 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 the need for more restrictive and expensive higher-level services.
- Long-Term Support: Services that focus on assisting individuals who have continuing, long-term 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.
Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m., December 21, 2020. The amount of funding for FY 2022 will be determined as part of the county’s adopted FY 2022 budget. In FY 2021, the budget for human service nonprofit grant funding was $1.1 million.
In addition to the standard nonprofit application grant process, a mini-grants process will once again be available for FY 2022 funding, providing a simplified application for any nonprofit applying for a grant of $5,000 or less. The mini-grants program is designed for innovative small-scale projects and new or small organizations that may lack the capacity to write a larger grant.
