you for your work in the County to improve the lives of our residents.
Non-departmental grant applications are now available, if you are
interested in applying. This year I am again focused in particular on
funding programs that provide services to the children and youth of our
county, specifically in District 3. In addition, I am interested in
supporting programs that encourage revitalization and redevelopment,
protect our natural resources, and provide resources to underserved
families and adults. Given that a citizen advisory group will be
reviewing the grant applications and making funding recommendations, I
encourage you to provide detailed information about your program, its
results (if available), as well as details about your service area. If
you have received funds in the past, please indicate how those funds
were used. You should also feel free to provide letters of support.
Similar to last year, this will be a competitive process, vetted through
our citizen advisory group and priority will be given to programs that
service District 3 residents.
Requests for funds should be received in our office no later than
September 30, 2012 and will be reviewed by a citizen advisory group
composed of residents from across District 3. A grant application can be
found on the County Council website.
Grant recipients will likely be announced in late November 2012 and the
next opportunity to apply for grants will be September 30, 2013. Grants
given are typically less than $5,000 dollars.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact my Chief
of Staff, Dannielle Glaros at 301-952-3060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together we can strengthen our community.
