The Office of the County Executive will ensure that the discretionary funding we invest in organizations will be in accordance with established criteria and focused on achieving quantifiable results.

What is CPG?

The Community Partnership Grant (CPG) program is the main discretionary grant initiative offered by the Office of the County Executive to qualified nonprofit organizations based upon a set of criteria, including the value added to the identified community, overall program costs, organizational stability and adequacy of other funding sources.

The County Executive’s FY 2019 approved budget contains approximately $1.6 million for competitive grants to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations based in or providing services in Prince George’s County.
