Baltimore County Pledges $1.3 Million to Nonprofits

Baltimore County is releasing $1.3 million in grants to nonprofit partners responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its economic impacts in Baltimore County.

Funding for the grant program is through the County’s allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski explained the importance of supporting Baltimore County’s nonprofit partners in a press release:

‘Our nonprofit organizations play a critical role in Baltimore County communities, working as boots on the ground to support our residents in myriad ways,’ County Executive Olszewski said. ‘With these grants, we continue supporting these nonprofits as they provide critical services for our residents and communities recovering from the pandemic.’

Before submitting a formal application, nonprofits must submit a pre-proposal eligibility questionnaire to be screened for their capacity to manage federal awards. The grant application process will open between August 3rd and 5th and close on September 2nd. The minimum grant request is $25,000 per proposal, and applicants may submit up to three proposals in one application. Nonprofits can learn more about Baltimore County’s grant program here.

Baltimore County’s collaborative approach to addressing critical public health and environmental issues will be on display at MACo’s Summer Conference. During the MACo Summer Conference session, “Health is Everybody’s Business,” several county officials, including Baltimore County’s Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability Director, will be joined by their community partners to discuss how they have collectively tackled enduring public health issues. 

The 2022 MACo Summer Conference, “Taking Care of Business,” will be held on August 17-20, 2022, at the Ocean City Convention Center, Ocean City, Maryland.
