(This is a companion article to one elsewhere in this issue that highlights a July 1 letter from the King George County to Project FAITH requesting financial and other details in regard to the viability of the HELP Center proposed project.)

Project FAITH’s proposal is to construct an $8.4 million HELP Center facility to house some government agencies and non-profits to provide services to low and moderate income individuals.

The governmental and non-profit service providers listed in the recent unsuccessful application for a $700,000 federal block grant are King George Free Clinic, Rappahannock Goodwill Industries, New

There’s another one?

The Dirty Lion Mud Run, held Saturday at Eagle Bay in King George, drew the rugged individualists who charged through the obstacles, and the teams who banded together for encouragement and support. Some teams had their own team shirts for the event, including these two ladies.  Their expressions show the reaction many competitors had when they succeeded in climbing one eight-foot wall only to discover ... there was another right beyond it!

HELP Center passed over for CDBG funding - again


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.
