Programs and Services
- Community Impact Fund - The overall goal of the Community Impact Fund is to build community trust and confidence in a human services system that is collaborative and responsive. We offer support for programs focused on health and human service needs for the people of Washington County, with particular interest in the three areas of education, financial stability, and health. Each program is evaluated by a panel of community volunteers on its efficiency of operation, financial accountability, and most importantly, its impact within the community. This upcoming grant cycle will have specific focus including addressing veterans’ needs and food insecurity in Washington County.
