Helping Others: $1.8 Million in Grants Awarded to Area Nonprofits

The Hampton Roads Community Foundation is looking forward to the impact its latest round of grants will have on southeastern Virginia. Grants were awarded in April 2016 from field-of-interest funds created by our generous donors. This round of Community Grants focused on environmental and facilities grants.

Habitat for Humanity South Hampton Roads was one of the nine area nonprofits awarded more than $1.8 million. Look for a Habitat for Humanity’s blitz build later this year to help nine Suffolk, Virginia families accomplish their dream of owning homes. The Hampton Roads Community Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to Habitat's South Hampton Roads affiliate to underpin a blitz build fueled by area volunteers with caring hearts and building skills.

See all nine grant recipients and learn how they will utilize their awards to benefit our region.
