[ARCHIVED] Council Announces Sixth Year of Domestic Violence Grant Funding for Local Nonprofits

$500,000 Grant Program Seeks Community Solutions for Ending Domestic Violence in Prince George’s County 

Pre-Proposal Conference October 16; Applications Accepted October 9-24

The Prince George’s County Council continues its commitment to heighten awareness, strengthen the County’s safety net, and enhance the effectiveness of nonprofit partners with its appropriation of $500,000 in the FY 2024 approved County Budget to support domestic violence programs in Prince George’s County. 

The FY 2024 Prince George’s County Council Grant Program provides funding support to programs that serve the housing, workforce development, mental health counseling, or legal advocacy needs of County residents who are survivors of domestic violence.

“The Council is grateful to all those who continue to work on the critical issue of domestic violence.  This appropriation reaffirms our commitment to confront the issue and support victims and families,” said Council Chair Tom Dernoga (District 1). “Eradicating domestic violence will continue to require a coordinated and collaborative community response between nonprofits, public safety officials, residents, and County Government and we look forward to working with all interested stakeholders.” 

Prince George’s County Council staff will host a Pre-Proposal Conference for the Prince George’s County Council Grant Program on Monday, October 16, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Wayne K. Curry Building, Room 2027. Interested nonprofit organizations may attend the conference to receive additional information about the Council’s Domestic Violence Grant Program and how to apply.
