Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations and government agencies to support services that help resolve disputes within the community. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to develop new programs in areas not currently served by existing programs. The purpose of the grant is to make mediation and conflict resolution services accessible and affordable to citizens in the state.
MACRO’s Community Mediation Performance Grant Program provides funding to nonprofit organizations and 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 fundraising a center has completed.
The Ten Point Model of Community Mediation in Maryland:
To be a successful community mediation program, centers must be strongly tied to the community they serve. For information about Community Interconnections, see Pages 5 - 10 of the application in Supporting Documents, below.
The success and strength of a community mediation center depends not only on strong community interconnections, but also on the provision of high quality services. Centers need to have highly skilled mediators, facilitators and other ADR practitioners for the community served to receive a reliable, high quality service. For additional information, see Pages 11 - 15 of the application in Supporting Documents, below.
Equally important to running a strong community mediation center is the ability to build and maintain a solid operational base that includes qualified staff, a board of directors that responsibly manages the center, established operating policies and practices, a physical location, and adequate financial resources to be able to provide continuous services to the public. For information about Organizational Capacity, see Pages 16 - 18 of the application in Supporting Documents, below.
