The Prince George’s County Council, in an initiative combatting domestic violence and related abuse in the County, has announced a list of ten nonprofit recipients of the Council’s FY 2022 Domestic Violence Grant Awards.
The Council appropriated $500,000 in FY 2022, for its sixth consecutive round of grant funding to support prevention activities and programs serving the Housing, Workforce Development, Counseling/Mental Health Services, or Advocacy/Legal Services needs of County residents who are victims of domestic violence and other forms of related abuse.
