Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for programs and projects that address the needs of local residents. Priority funding is offered to established programs already supported by the Funding Source. Grants are available for activities that benefit the communities of Montgomery County.

Given the current fiscal climate and the intention to transition to a new Community Grants process in FY22, the County Executive will recommend prioritizing funding in the following order:

  • Renewing viable and effective FY20 Community Grants funded programs.
  • Renewing programs and funding levels for Community Grants from FY18 and FY19, if they were funded at a lower level or not funded for FY20.
  • Creating, as funding allows, a limited pool of resources for new programs or program enhancements
