The Frederick County Community Partnership Grant program awards competitive grants to non-profit organizations serving the needs of County residents. Beginning with the FY25 cycle, these grants can be used for one-time needs or for operating funds, but organizations may only submit one application per cycle. Applications will be accepted that target the following expanded priority areas:

  • Housing initiatives, including affordable housing and initiatives to help people age in place;
  • Addressing Homelessness and housing insecurity; 
  • Quality of Life initiatives, including support for seniors, youth support and engagement, recreation, and transportation innovation; 
  • Health and Human Services, such as programs addressing mental health, behavioral health, substance abuse prevention and intervention, and maternal health; and 
  • Arts and the Creative Economy including organizations expanding access to cultural enrichment and providing community arts and culture programming. 

To better reflect the diverse priority funding areas and align with other grant programs the County offers, effective immediately, the administration of the program will move to the Division of Finance/Office of Procurement and Contracting.
