The maximum amount of GOG funding that shall be awarded to any single organization in a given fiscal year is $3,500.
For activities occurring between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
Grantees must be nonprofit (or eligible for IRS tax-exempt status) and based in Allegany County. Out-of-county organizations that produce arts programming in Allegany County may also be eligible.
GOG funds may not be used for fundraising events or social functions.
Programs that proselytize for specific political actions or religious beliefs are not eligible for funding.
By-laws must provide that assets do not accrue to any director, officer or member of the organization.
Programs and events funded with GOG money must be open to the general public.
In order to stimulate rather than replace community support, a 1:1 cash match is required (i.e., GOG grant funding may not exceed 1/2 of the proposed program budget). Funds from the Maryland State Arts Council are not allowed as part of this match. In-kind or donated services are similarly ineligible to be included in the match although they should be identified on the application.
