The Northern Virginia/DC Metro area is full of incredible resources to help students and their families find a financial footing. Many of these resources have been found helpful by NOVA students to help pay for living expenses like food, housing, child care, transportation, and other costs while in school.
Most services are allocated by what county an individual resides in. Find here a comprehensive list of services available in each of the City/Counties in the Northern Virginia area. I list of Washington DC services are in process of being added to the website.
