Investing in Vulnerable Populations Grants is a county-wide grant initiative to provide nonprofit organizations with funding to support the physical, social, environmental and emotional needs of our most vulnerable populations in Westmoreland County.  The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County wishes to address the root causes of poverty by supporting long term solutions that assist individuals and families to move out of poverty, assist those with limited capacity, such as low income, underrepresented and vulnerable populations to live with dignity.  The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County encourages applicants to propose effective and data driven strategies, as well as creative or new approaches.
