ACDS’ Community Grants team, together with an inter-agency panel from Anne Arundel County government, has been busy reviewing applications for the County Executive’s Community Support Grant Program. This year we received 145 applications, 60 more than last year! Requests for funding include support for a diverse range of activities including healthy food assistance, cultural institutions, education, and mental health/wellness programming for youth and adults.
Grants typically range from $10,000-$75,000. In 2021 approximately $2 million was awarded to Anne Arundel County nonprofits. Recommendations for awards will be announced in June and funding available on July 1.
