Frederick County officials awarded 27 human services nonprofit agencies with Community Partnership Grants for fiscal year 2021.
County Executive Jan Gardner, County Council President M.C. Keegan-Ayer, and Vice President Michael Blue announced the grant program awards and expressed appreciation for the work the agencies do to help community members in times of need.
From the Frederick County press release:
Grants will provide food to children and seniors; respite service for caretakers of seniors with dementia; home repairs for veterans and seniors with low income; job skills and education for homeless youth; emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence; and 2-1-1 crisis services for residents facing addiction, among many other services.
The program leverages county resources, avoids duplication of effort and establishes a strong functional collaboration to meet the human service needs in the community. The county saves tax dollars working with the community organizations through early intervention and prevention.
