Thank you for your work in the County to improve the lives
of our residents. If you are interested in applying this year for a
Special Appropriation with my office, the applications are now available
During this upcoming year, I will continue to focus on
funding programs in District 3 that provide services to children and youth. 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 and 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. The citizen advisory group is
interested in making sure that funds spent deliver results, so this information
as well as a comprehensive description of the program is important. 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
Request for funds should be received in our office no later than August 30, 2014
and will be reviewed by a citizen advisory group composed of residents from
across District 3. Please note that this date is earlier than previous years
since my last day in office is the end of November. A grant application can be
found on the County Council website at http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/sites/CountyCouncil/Services/Grants/Pages/default.aspxThe
forms can be found toward the bottom of the page.
Grant recipients will likely be announced in November 2014
and the next opportunity to apply for grants will be September, 30, 2015.
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.
