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 further environmental sustainability, economic development, and community revitalization. Grants are also intended to assist youth, individuals, and families in attaining self-sufficiency. Funds must benefit the city of Annapolis.

Subject to the availability of funds, the City will consider funding an operating and/or capital grant* to a non-profit organization with an application submission that meets one of the following priorities:

  1. Provides services that sustain and empower youth, families and individuals to move towards an improved quality of life and self-sufficiency;
  2. Provides programs that preserve and enhance a community's character;
  3. Provides programs that contribute to a vibrant economy; or
  4. Promotes programs that are integral to community revitalization, economic development and environmental sustainability. 

*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 purchase of equipment by a non-profit organization.

Programs should provide 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.
