Project FAITH’s proposed HELP Center project has been passed over again by the state in the latest round of competitive grant applications funded this week by the Department of Housing & Community Development.
Governor Bob McDonnell announced on Friday, June 21, that eleven projects around the state will receive $6.8 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding.
But the HELP Center project was not among them.
$700,000 had been requested in CDBG funding to go toward construction of a 1,500 square-foot free clinic that would comprise a portion of the proposed 30,500 square-foot facility.
Project FAITH executive director Froncé Wardlaw is on next week’s agenda to report progress for the project slated to be built on land already provided free from the county. The meeting on Jun. 25 begins at 6:00 p.m.
In addition to any progress, she is expected to also be questioned about whether her other potential funding sources will hold together with this setback, along with a more thorough explanation about a letter that she has taken responsibility for altering that came from Rappahannock Community College President Elizabeth Crowther. That letter had been intended for one-time use in 2010 on the first failed CDBG application for proposed HELP Center.

The question of who actually altered a 2010 Rappahannock Community College (RCC) letter expressing interest in the proposed HELP Center project in King George still has many shaking their heads.
Thoughts of who altered the letter, and for what purpose, will likely linger at next week’s meeting of the Board of Supervisors when Project FAITH executive

It remains a mystery whether the HELP Center project proposed by Project FAITH on 5.3 acres of land given to it by the county will ever get off the ground.
If it doesn’t, or if the performance agreement and or terms of the deed of gift are deemed by the Board of Supervisors to be violated, a
