County Executive's Community Support Grants Program
The County Executive's Office is pleased to offer FY 2021 Community Support Grants to eligible non-profit organizations.
Important Grant Updates (Updated 3/31/2020)
Applications are still due on April 15, 2020 by 4:00 p.m. However, we are accepting electronic copies of the grant application only - no hard copies should be submitted. Please submit one electronic copy of your application materials to [email protected] with "FY 2021 County Executive Community Support Grant - [YOUR ORGANIZATION NAME]" in the subject line.
A new document with supplementary questions specific to the COVID-19 crisis is now included in the application packet above (Addendum I - COVID-19 Questionnaire). All grant applicants need to complete this questionnaire and submit it with the applications.
If you are having trouble meeting any of the submission or applications requirements as a result of complications due to COVID-19, please contact us at 410-222-3236 or [email protected] no later than Monday, April 12. We will work with you to address these challenges on a case by case basis.
Funding is available for the period July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 and is contingent on approval of the FY 2021 budget by the County Council. The County Executive anticipates one-time funding in FY 2021 that will not be available in FY 2022. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit requests that have a one-time cost.
County Executive's Priorities
The County Executive has identified several priorities for the community grant program, and applicants must meet one or more of these priorities:
Provide services to underserved populations in Anne Arundel County
Address the health and wellbeing of communities
Promote equity and inclusion
Types of Grants
Capital Grants provide funding to non-profit organizations to purchase large, fixed equipment and related supplies or to make capital improvements such as renovation, remodeling, or restoration of buildings.
Non-Capital Grants provide funding to non-profit organizations to help build their capacity, increase their impact and operate more efficiently and effectively to improve and enrich the lives of Anne Arundel County residents and communities. This type of grant may include support for small equipment purchases such as computers.
Although community support grants have been awarded for general operating expenses, preference will be given to new or existing programs and projects that address an unmet need in Anne Arundel County.View organizations and projects funded by previous community grants
