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

Monday, June 28, 2021

VB Home Now is accepting grant proposals from organizations that assist families and individuals experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis in Virginia Beach. The foundation is looking for impactful projects for calendar year 2022 that contribute to the Virginia Beach homeless service system and will prioritize funding requests that provide resources, create partnerships, and address gaps within the community that directly impact the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless.

The application package can be found at www.vbhomenow.org. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 16.

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 its inception in 2016, the foundation has received more than $1 million from generous supporters in the community to support the work of the Virginia Beach homeless service system and at the Housing Resource Center. This year, the foundation has committed nearly $140,000 to support families and individuals in need, providing services such as weekend meals for Virginia Beach City Public School students; utility, transportation, and emergency rent assistance for formerly homeless individuals; hygiene and resource kits for unsheltered individuals; 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.
