No. The Executive Branch’s discretionary grant process (CPG) differs from the Legislative Branch application process with each branch of government having its own application and documentation requirements. Applicants seeking funding from the County Council (Legislative Branch) in the form of a Special Appropriation Grant (SAG) or a Non-Departmental Designated grant, should refer to the Prince George’s County Council websitehttps://pgccouncil.us/320/Grantsor email the Prince George’s County Council Grant Team atPGCcouncilgrants@co.pg.md.us.
No. Changes have been made to the overall grant application from previous years. Additionally, incorrect applications are determined to be non-responsive and will not be reviewed. You can access this year application by visiting Community Partnership Grants.
Yes, please include an address even if your main offices are located outside of Prince George’s County. Please detail if your services are in several locations around Prince George’s County, if students come to you, if you travel, or if your services are virtual, etc.
The Community Partnership Grant (CPG) program is the main discretionary grant initiative offered by the Office of the County Executive. However, the Office of the County Executive may partner with the Greater Washington Community Foundation (formerly known as the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region) to provide additional grant funding opportunities. Additionally, County Health and Human Service agencies may offer limited grant opportunities from time to time.
If your organization received a grant or contract from the County in the last four years, you should already have an SAP vendor number. It is a ten-digit number that begins with a “1xxxxxxxxx” or “3xxxxxxxxx”.
You must provide proof you have a SAP vendor number in the submitted application package. If you need to confirm your vendor number, send an email to PGCNonprofits@co.pg.md.us with the subject line: Verification of Vendor Number – Name of your Organization.
If you do not have a SAP vendor number, please complete and submit the Vendor Set-Up Request Form. This form is required for organizations who have never received a grant or contract from Prince George’s County.
Yes, there is a limit. We will accept one proposal per organization per fiscal year. An organization with multiple programs may only submit a grant application for one of their programs. In the event an organization submits more than one proposal, we reserve the right to select the application with the earliest date and time stamp.
No. Organizations that currently or seek to provide programming in or collaborate with Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS), must provide a copy of a currently executed Memorandum of Understanding at the time of application. This will serve as acceptable documentation that the program has been reviewed and approved by the Chief Executive Officer of PGCPS.
