Loudoun County’s grant application process for community nonprofit organizations is now open with the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY 2024) Human Services Nonprofit Grant Application 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 2024 are eligible to apply for funding. The areas of need are:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m., Thursday, December 22, 2022. The amount of funding for FY 2024 will be determined by the Board of Supervisors as part of the county’s adopted FY 2024 budget. In FY 2023, the budget for human services nonprofit grant funding was $1.8 million.
Loudoun County has two options for organizations seeking local tax funds through the FY 2024 Human Services 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-grant 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-grant program is designed for innovative small-scale projects and new or small organizations that may lack the capacity to write a larger grant.
