Community Mediation Performance-based Grants:
Grants in this category are available to non-profit organizations or government entities in Maryland that provide community mediation services that meet MACRO’s Ten-Point Model of Community Mediation. Funding is based on how well centers are meeting the ten-point model, on the number of conflict resolution intakes and sessions that a center provides, and on the amount of matching funds raised.
Funding in this category is open by invitation-only: Applicants must contact MACRO first. Community mediation center start-up grants are available to help create new programs in areas not currently served by existing programs.
