The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William is distributing money to help the community recover from the lasting impact of the pandemic.
Through a partnership with Prince William County, the organization plans to distribute $10 million from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) by 2024.
The focus of the grants were specified in a press release from the Prince William County Office of Communications. The press release details COVID-19 recovery efforts such as aiding in childcare costs, emergency shelter, hunger relief programs, and access to mental and behavioral health assistance.
In the first round, more than $6 million went toward grants ranging from $10,000 to $300,000, and were awarded to 33 organizations.
Such examples are organizations like George Mason University – which provides free mental health support to Prince William County residents – and ACTION in Community Through Service (ACTS) – which has a community feeding assistance program and offers counseling and childcare for those impacted by domestic violence.
The complete list of organizations that received COVID-19 recovery funding is shown below:
The second round of money will be administered in early 2023. A Zoom call will be held on April 29 at 10 a.m. Community members are invited to attend the meeting and visit the Humane Services Alliance website to sign up or learn additional information.
The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William is a nonprofit that seeks to aid residents in the community by collaborating with human service providers.
