Non-profits and faith-based organizations have a chance to receive additional funding.
Grants are becoming available through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) and The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William are teaming up to administer $10 million among eligible organizations, which could receive up to $300,000 from the grant program, according to a release from Prince William County.
Established a couple of years ago, The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William is a non-profit that offers training, assistance with technology, as well as educational and networking opportunities.
Groups that have offered COVID-19 recovery support to county residents through various services – including shelter, hunger, and help with mortgages, rent and utilities – may apply. Proposals will be accepted between 9 a.m. on February 18 and 11:59 p.m. on March 13.
“Since the pandemic started, nonprofits and faith-based organizations have done a tremendous job serving our area’s most vulnerable residents with basic needs assistance and various forms of relief,” The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William Executive Director Chelsi Conaway said in a release. “We are honored to help these groups access funds that will allow them to further aid in the recovery of those who have been most impacted by COVID-19.”
Three information sessions will be offered through Zoom at these dates and times:
