Loudoun County supervisors agreed to disperse more than $1 million in grant funding Wednesday, including nearly $177,000 to HealthWorks for Northern Virginia, a private, nonprofit community health center that provides care to primarily low income and uninsured residents.
Other top recipients included the Loudoun Small Business Development Center, which was awarded $170,000, the Blue Ridge Speech and Hearing Center, which received $80,000, the Loudoun Free Clinic, which was granted nearly $85,000 and Loudoun Cares, a nonprofit administrative hub, was awarded nearly $80,000.
Per a new county policy, groups applying for grant funding were divided into six categories: health and related services; hunger and homelessness mitigation; emergency services; administrative services; recreation and culture; and economic development. All applicants were rated on new county-initiated metrics involving "mission, demonstration of need and other available resources" and an analysis of the applicants' financial ratios, trends and economic impact."
