The Community Partnership Grant (CPG) program is the main discretionary grant initiative offered by the Office of the County Executive.

All applicants selected to receive grant funding will be notified with an award letter once we have received final award decisions from the Office of the County Executive. The Office of Management and Budget does not issue email notifications to applicants. Award letters are mailed in the self-addressed stamped envelopes provided to us at the time of application.
Previous CPG awards have ranged from $1,000 to $125,000, however, anticipated awards issued in this funding cycle will not exceed $100,000.
Funding will depend on several factors. Many aspects of your proposal are taken into consideration, including your organization's mission and goals, statement of need/problem, project description and sustainability relative to the amount requested, evidence of partnerships and collaboration and how your dollars are invested within the communities you serve.
The County strongly encourages the use of electronic deposits via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. Instructions and an authorization form for Electronic Funds Transfer are provided on the County’s website. Please allow at minimum, 30 days from the time of award notification.
The total amount of your award will be disbursed in one payment.
This is a decision your organization will have to make. We recognize that this poses a challenge for the impacted organization and will do our best to refrain from this practice, however, the decision to make full or partial awards is at the discretion of the Executive Review Panel.
Once the Office of Management and Budget receives your application and required supporting documentation, an eligibility verification review is completed. Once this review is complete, a letter will be mailed indicating your application status. There are two statuses: complete or incomplete. Only “complete” proposals will be forwarded to the Executive Review Panel for review and funding consideration. Please enclose two self-addressed stamped envelopes with your application for status notification.
Yes. Only organizations determined to have provided appropriate and accurate proof of eligibility documentation receive this notification. Your proposal will be forwarded to the Office of the County Executive and the members of the Executive Review Panel for full consideration.
The Executive Review Panel will convene to review and evaluate proposal submissions. Consideration for award recommendations and final decisions may include, but are not limited to, support of underserved populations, geographic diversity, Administration’s strategic priorities and past performance. Awards are subject to funding availability.
Due to the large volume of requests we receive and limited financial resources, we do not offer an appeal process. We encourage all applicants to thoroughly review our application, eligibility guidelines and related funding priorities.

The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation issues a certificate verifying that a business entity is in “good standing”. For more information, please see Certificate of Status on the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) website.

Your Certificate of Status, also known as your “Certificate of Good Standing”, should be obtained from the jurisdiction where your organization is currently based.

Travelers can expect certain inconveniences throughout the SafeTrack Plan. However, Prince George’s residents should make special note of the following surge projects: June 18 - July 3 (16 Days): Line Segment Shutdown for Orange, Blue & Silver Lines Affecting Eastern Market to Minnesota Ave & Benning Road (293,000 peak trips will be impacted) November 12 - December 6 (25 Days): Continuous Single Track for Yellow & Green Lines Affecting Greenbelt to College Park The June 18 surge is a line segment shutdown between Eastern Market to Minnesota Avenue/Benning Road Metro Stations. WMATA will be providing Free Bus Shuttle service between Eastern Market and Minnesota/Benning Road with stops at Stadium-Armory and Potomac Avenue. Since the June 18 surge project will impact approximately 293,000 peak trips, we encourage residents to avoid using MetroRail and seek travel alternatives, including local bus, regional commuter service, and carpools and take advantage of flex time, alternative work schedules and teleworking, if available. If you must use the MetroRail system, then plan ahead to account for reduced train service and traveling on WMATA’s shuttles between the shutdown areas. WMATA is providing parallel local bus service enhancements on the 97, T18, X9 Routes during the line segment shutdown and advising patrons to consider existing Metrobus alternatives which bypass the shutdown area, such as the 96, X2, 30N, 30S, 32, 34, and 36. Residents have an option to board a MARC train from the Bowie State and New Carrollton stops on the Penn Line or Laurel, Muirkirk, Greenbelt, College Park and Riverdale stops on the Camden Line, which provide direct commuter service to Union Station in Washington, D.C. Visit information about passenger fares and schedules. https://mta.maryland.gov/marc-train Also, residents should consider using the Green Line Stations for travel into downtown Washington, D.C. Parking is available at Greenbelt and Branch Avenue Metrorail Stations. Visit the WMATA website for more information about parking capacity and rates at each respective station. http://www.wmata.com/rail/parking/ The November surge is a continuous single tracking phase from Greenbelt to College Park. During this phase rail service will be available but the wait times will be significantly longer. We suggest visiting our Rideshare website at http://www.ridesmartsolutions.com/ for alternate travel options during the June 18th surge and single tracking projects.
