Albemarle County announces Community Lift Grant recipients

albemarle countyAlbemarle County today announced the recipients of the Community Lift Grant, a support initiative for local non-profits that have been impacted by COVID-19 and continue to provide services to our community in response to the pandemic.

Grants utilized funding received by Albemarle County through the CARES Coronavirus Relief Fund. “As Albemarle County evaluated where CARES CRF funding could best support our community, the non-profit sector quickly arose as an area that other federal and state programs were not reaching. Albemarle County’s non-profits contribute to the vibrancy of our community,” said Roger Johnson, Director of Economic Development.

Applications were considered based on the extent of COVID-19’s impact to the organization and by how the grant funds would be used to serve Albemarle County residents.

Non-profits eligible to receive funding were divided into three categories:

  • Food, Shelter, Financial Security, Childcare
  • Economic Development/Business
  • Arts, Education, Causes, Health, Support Services

“We’re pleased to have been able to provide financial support to non-profits that have demonstrated expertise in delivering human services, enabling them to continue to meet the most immediate needs of the community, particularly around financial security, child care, housing, and food,” shared Director of Social Services, Phyllis Savides.
