Grant Program Seeks Community Solutions for Ending Domestic Violence in the County

The Prince George’s County Council, in an initiative combatting domestic violence and related abuse in the County, has announced recipients of the Council’s FY 2020 Domestic Violence Grant funding.

The Prince George’s County Council appropriated $500,000 in FY 2020 in a fourth consecutive 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.

Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D) – District 4, stressed the importance of continued collaboration between government and nonprofits to address domestic violence in Prince George’s County.

“Over the last four years the Council has invested $2 million in grant funds to combat domestic violence in Prince George’s County. The Council’s Domestic Violence Grant Fund Program not only helps provide services to those in need across our County, but also builds capacity among nonprofits with the shared goal of ending domestic violence. We appreciate the work of our awardees, nonprofits and all those who applied for grant funding who are working to support families and save lives.”
