The Prince George’s County Council, in an initiative combatting domestic violence and related abuse in the County, announced recipients of the Council’s FY 2019 Domestic Violence Grant funding following a proclamation ceremony recognizing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
The Prince George’s County Council appropriated $500,000 in FY 2019 in a third round of grant funding to support the Council’s Domestic Violence Grant Program, a funding resource for programs that serve the housing, counseling, or advocacy needs of County residents who are victims of domestic violence. Grant funds are available to nonprofit organizations through a review and evaluation process for all applicants.
