PATH announces $1.5 Million in New Community Resilience Grants

Warrenton, Va. — The PATH Foundation has announced more than $1.5 million in special Community Resilience Grants to 44 local organizations. The Community Resilience Grants were a one-time grant cycle created to help ease the financial burden of increased expenses due to the impact of COVID-19. The total granted in this round of giving was $1,501,720.

“The increased burdens associated with the virus are far reaching,” said Christy Connolly, PATH Foundation president and CEO. “From increased demand for services, additional costs of sanitizing and distancing requirements, to the cancellation of in-person events that provide funding support for organizations, it has been difficult all around. Through these grants and our previous COVID-19 response funding, we hope to help organizations continue their important work in our community.”

Previously, the PATH Foundation granted a total of $816,500 in pandemic relief funding. With this latest round of Community Resilience Grants, this total increases to more than $2.3 million.
