Grants of up to $45,000 to Montgomery County, Maryland nonprofit organizations and government agencies for public programs that benefit low-income residents and people with special needs in eligible communities. Programs may align with the following focus areas: employment, healthcare, positive youth development, eviction prevention, housing-related supportive services, crime prevention, education, mental health, welfare, or recreation.
Each year, Montgomery County receives many more applications for CDBG public service grants than there are funds available. The competition is greatest among applicants requesting funds for staff and operating costs associated with providing services to some of the area's most vulnerable residents: the elderly, children and youth, recent immigrants, the homeless, people with mental and physical disabilities, and victims of violence.
In addition to the Federal requirements, Montgomery County has developed policies and priorities to guide its use of CDBG funds. These policies and priorities are based on federal requirements for the CDBG program and local needs and funding priorities.
Funding priority will be given to activities that:
GrantWatch ID#: 138449
The maximum grant amount that may be requested for FY 2021 is $45,000.

The County is committed to funding projects that are ready to proceed immediately after funds are received, and those prepared to spend the funds within a twelve-month period (any funds that are not spent within this timeframe may be recaptured by the County.)
