Baltimore County and the Baltimore Community Foundation announced $400,000 in grants have been distributed to 50 local community-based organizations.
These grants come from the Baltimore County COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund and are a part of a collaborative effort to support the County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From Avenue News:
“County government is working around the clock to respond to this crisis, but we know even more needs to be done. We’re so thankful for partners like BGE, Tradepoint Atlantic, the Weinberg Foundation and all our generous donors for recognizing that we are in this together, ” Baltimore County Executive Olszewski said.
“Baltimore County is home to so many dedicated community organizations and we’re proud to support the invaluable services they provide to our neighbors during this trying time.”
The Emergency Response Fund grants, established on March 31 and managed by the Baltimore Community Foundation, were awarded to County-based organizations in amounts of $3,000 to $11,300. As the Baltimore Community Fundation is managed by an external partner, the County is able to accept donations from individuals as well as foundations and corporate donors in order to further support County residents and organizations during the pandemic.
