The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia has announced the Round 3 grantees from the COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia.
The following types of organizations were invited to apply:
  • Organizations offering access to health care, mental health care, and dental health care for low income, uninsured and underinsured residents, and
  • organizations offering direct services to victims of domestic violence, which is soaring under stay at home orders across our region.

We originally estimated that approximately $350,000 would be awarded in Round 3. However, there were strong contributions to the COVID-19 Response Fund and a phenomenal demand for support.
