What is Arlington Neighborhood Village?
A volunteer group of your Arlington neighbors has introduced the Village concept in Arlington County. Arlington’s compact size provides an opportunity to realize economies of scale by offering village functions on a county-wide basis and by sharing central administrative and technical services such as a website, database, contact point, and insurance.
In Arlington’s model, a small, non-profit organization known as Arlington Neighborhood Village (ANV) acts as a county-wide village, serving eligible residents throughout Arlington County. ANV performs all administrative functions via a small central office and staff. In addition, ANV may partner with county and private service providers and vendors to identify and recommend available products and programs.
A summary of the Arlington Neighborhood Village endeavor is available in the ANV Brochure, with additional information in the ANV factsheet, both of which you can print to share with neighbors, friends, and family.
