Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for operational support and capital projects that enhance the local quality of life. Funding is intended to support programs that empower youth and families, and promote environmental sustainability, economic development, and community revitalization. Eligible proposals benefit the city of Annapolis.

For the purposes of this grant program, an "operating grant" shall provide support for the day-to-day costs of running the non-profit organization. A "capital grant" shall provide support for the purchase of property, the construction, remodeling, or expansion of a facility, or the purchase of equipment by a nonprofit organization.  

The City’s priorities for giving a community grant to a nonprofit organization include:

  • The project or activity has quantifiable outcomes.
  • The organization provides plans for securing funding from sources other than those provided by the City of Annapolis.
  • It represents a cooperative effort among the applicant, the community, and other private and/or public partners.
  • The organization displays creative ways of helping people help themselves.
  • The program provides activities in support of the City’s goal of providing a system in which all residents of the City of Annapolis have access to services that sustain and enhance the quality of life and are equitable, effective, accountable, and responsive to changing community needs.
