Community Grants Program

For over 60 years, the JLNV has been investing in the community by providing grant funding to trusted community partners. The JLNV would like to support innovative projects or programs that will measurably improve the lives of children in our community by empowering them to make healthy food and lifestyle choices to reduce childhood obesity and its associated health issues.

Grant Application

The JLNV invites you to submit a grant application. This application, the first step in the partnership selection process, will enable us to identify the type of partnership you seek; how it supports our focus areas of childhood obesity, nutrition, health and wellness; how you would use the JLNV’s volunteers; and the funds required to successfully run the program.

Please refer to the approximate timeline (below) for the Community Partnership application process. If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact the Community Grants Committee at communitygrants@jlnv.org or call the JLNV office at 703-442-4163.
