VB Home Now Foundation Accepting Grant Proposals for Programs to Prevent and End Homelessness in Virginia Beach

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

​VB Home Now is accepting proposals from organizations that assist families and individuals experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis in Virginia Beach. Specifically, the foundation is seeking innovative projects that contribute to the Virginia Beach homeless service system and will prioritize funding requests that provide resources, create partnerships, and address gaps within our community that directly impact the homeless and at-risk populations.

The application package, instructions and eligibility requirements can be found at www.vbhomenow.org. Applications are due by Wednesday, Nov. 25 at 5 p.m. The VB Home Now board of directors will choose grant recipients and award funds in December.

VB Home Now is a nonprofit foundation that supports and enhances the community system of services, programs and facilities to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring in Virginia Beach. Since VB Home Now's inception in 2016, more than $1 million in private donations have been raised to support the work at the Housing Resource Center and address key needs in the community. This year, the foundation has committed more than $180,000 to support families and individuals in need, such as weekend meals for students through the Virginia Beach Education Foundation's Beach Bags program and short-term financial assistance to prevent homelessness.

For more information about VB Home Now and the grant application process, please contact Erin Walker, resource development coordinator, at (757) 385-5760 or ewalker@vbgov.com.
