For a second year, the foundation has awarded unrestricted grants to Washington County nonprofit organizations.
The foundation targeted agencies that provide human service, recreational and artistic programs, foundation Executive Director Bradley N. Sell said.
Sell said the Community Foundation of Washington County has awarded $1.3 million to area nonprofit agencies since 1997, a year after the foundation was started.
