Human Services Grant Fund offers connections, credibility for DuPage nonprofits
More than 40 nonprofits in DuPage County receive some degree of funding from the county's Human Services Grant Fund, which vets and approves money for agencies that improve the quality of life for residents.
In the nearly two decades the fund has existed, it has become a million-dollar source of revenue for the agencies it aids, which range from addiction treatment facilities to homeless shelters. Since its inception, said Mary Keating, DuPage County director of community services, the Human Services Grant Fund has been a "recognition by the county of the important work that nonprofits do."
Nonprofit organizations considered for funding go through an extensive screening process, Keating said. They must be operational within the county for a minimum of three years and provide a direct and basic human service to the residents of DuPage County. Those that have a track record of assisting the poor and have worked with the county previously are preferred.
