For the fifth consecutive year, the Prince George’s County Council is providing funding to nonprofit partners to help heighten awareness, strengthen safety nets, and increase the effectiveness of domestic violence programs.

From a county council press release:

The FY 2021 Prince George’s Domestic Violence 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.

“Domestic violence is still a pervasive issue in our communities that will require a heightened level of  attention and engagement, especially as COVID-19 drives more of our residents indoors and out of regular sight,” said Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D) – District 4.   “Eradicating domestic violence will continue to require a collaborative effort between nonprofits, public safety officials, residents and County Government.  This funding reaffirms the Council’s ongoing commitment to address the issue and support victims.”
