COUNTY COUNCIL ANNOUNCES RECIPIENTS OF FY 2023 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE GRANT AWARDS DURING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
$500,000 Total Grants Awarded to 10 Nonprofits Targeting Domestic Violence
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 2023 Domestic Violence Grant Awards.
The Council appropriated $500,000 in FY 2023, for its seventh 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. To date, the Council has awarded $3.5 million in Domestic Violence Grants through this program.
Chair Calvin S. Hawkins, II, says this new round of grant funding is timely and necessary.
“Domestic violence remains a major challenge in the County, so we are incredibly grateful for the work of our nonprofits who provide critical service support to survivors of domestic violence and their families. Through its Domestic Violence Grant Program, the Council reaffirms its commitment to working with nonprofits to strengthen communities, support survivors and their families, and build capacity for organizations assisting residents and their families through additional resources and by encouraging collaboration.”
