Local nonprofits that provide community-based program initiatives in Prince George's County can apply for the next round of County Executive Rushern Baker III's Community Partnership Grants.
About $1.6 million is available for the fiscal year 2014 grant program, according to county officials.
Last year, county nonprofits and religious-based organizations received about $1.6 million in grants from the fiscal year program, according to county officials, including three nonprofit groups that offer programs to Laurel students. First Generation College Bound, which helps high school students achieve a college education, received $15,000; Lovely Ladies of Laurel mentoring group for girls received $10,000; and the Laurel Boys and Girls Club received $20,000.
Nonprofit organizations that have 501(c)(3) status and provide services in Prince George's County are eligible to apply. Only one application will be accepted from each organization. To download an application, go to princegeorgescountymd.gov.
Applications are due Friday, Nov. 22 at the Office of Management and Budget, Suite 3000, 14741 Governor Oden Bowie Drive, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772; email and facsimile applications will not be accepted.
