Loudoun County is supporting nonprofits in identifying grant funding to accomplish their mission by providing funding alerts of government and private grant opportunities that may be relevant to an organization’s work. Nonprofits interested in discussing the details of the funding opportunities below may submit the Grants Interest & Technical Assistance Scheduling Form to schedule a one-hour meeting with the Loudoun County grants staff.
Completion of the form does not connect you to any funders, indicate a commitment to apply, or partnership with the county, nor does it guarantee funding. Nonprofits with a 501(c)3 status are eligible for each of the competitive funding opportunities listed below. Please review the notification of funding carefully to decide whether it aligns with your organization’s scope.
Loudoun County has allocated local American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to support nonprofits in diversifying their funding sources.

Projects that center Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and those that promote discovery and access to collections that explore the ideals behind our nation’s founding are especially welcome.
