Link to information about nonprofit grant funding in Loudoun County

Loudoun County’s nonprofit grant application process for community nonprofit organizations will open on November 8, 2021, when the Fiscal Year 2023 (FY 2023) Human Service Nonprofit Grant Application will be made available at loudoun.gov/nonprofitgrants.

Nonprofits certified as 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 2023 are eligible to apply for funding. The areas of need 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.

The online grant application and related documents are scheduled to be posted by 3:00 p.m., November 8, 2021, at loudoun.gov/nonprofitgrants. Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m., December 21, 2021. The amount of funding for FY 2023 will be determined by the Board of Supervisors as part of the county’s adopted FY 2023 budget. In FY 2022, the budget for human service nonprofit grant funding was $1.8 million.

Funding Options

Loudoun County has two options for organizations seeking funds through the FY 2023 human service nonprofit grant process: 

  • The standard nonprofit grant application process for organizations seeking awards of $5,001 - $113,000; organizations will be awarded proportional funding. 
  • A mini-grants process providing a simplified application for organizations applying for a grant of $5,000 or less; organizations will be awarded the full amount requested. 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.

Pre-Application Information Webinar on November 9, 2021

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in a pre-application information webinar hosted by the county scheduled for November 9, 2021, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Information on how to access the webinar is available at loudoun.gov/nonprofitgrants and loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. The webinar will be recorded and will be available to access at loudoun.gov/nonprofitgrants.
