DuPage County created the Human Services Grant Fund to assist organizations that serve County residents in need. This year, the fund will distribute $1 million to grant recipients.

The grants are available to organizations that help families achieve independence, ensure the protection of children and other vulnerable residents and maximize prevention opportunities to strengthen families’ well-being and stability. In the 2016 grant year, more than 62,000 people received assistance. The average grant awarded in 2016 was $16,950.

Information regarding eligibility guidelines, selection criteria, and the grant application will be available on Jan. 4 at www.dupageco.org/Community_Services/Client_Services/6285/ in the Human Services Grant Fund section.
