Nonprofit Grant Funding for Fiscal Year 2023

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors approved awards for funding to community nonprofit organizations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 during its May 3, 2022, meeting.

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 in meeting a critical need for safety, health, security and independence. 

Loudoun County prioritizes investment in high quality human services that provide significant outcomes for county residents. Nonprofits certified as 501(c)3 organizations are eligible to apply. Funding is 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 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.
