Community Impact Grants Now Available
Largo, MD --- The Redevelopment Authority of Prince George’s County has $500,000 in Community Impact Grants to award to county civic/neighborhood associations or community-based organizations that are incorporated as 501(c)3 entities. Community Impact Grants provide small capital grants to community-based organizations to help implement innovative projects within the County. Eligible applicants must be located within Prince George’s County and be in good standing with the State of Maryland.
“We are pleased to announce that the County has doubled the amount of funding available for this year allowing for increased grant amounts and a greater impact with the projects selected,” says Eric C. Brown, Interim Director of the Redevelopment Authority.
Grants must be used for capital purposes such as the purchase of equipment and materials. Grants cannot be used for operations, program costs, salaries or personnel. Proposed projects must fall into one of two categories: Neighborhood Beautification or Environment or Natural Resources and Sustainability. Grants can only be used for capital expenses related to the implementation of a community based project.
Total funding for FY 2018 for this program will not exceed $500,000 and the maximum grant amount is $75,000. Successful applicants shall have up to one year from the date of the executed grant agreement to complete the project and expend the grant funds. The Community Impact Grant Program does require a match from non-Prince George’s County Government sources, which can include both in-kind and cash contributions.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until such time the grant funds have all been spent.
