Upper Marlboro, Maryland – Today, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III announced the release of FY 2012 Community Partnership Mini-Grant (CPMG) and Community Partnership Grant (CPG) applications.  $2 million in discretionary grant funding has been allocated in the County Executive’s current fiscal year budget.  This funding to eligible organizations will assist in developing and maintaining strong partnerships with non-profits in order to meet the needs of County citizens and residents. 

Any organization, institution, or association, incorporated as a private, not-for-profit organization designated under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, providing services or activities in Prince George’s County is eligible to apply.  Applications will be accepted continuously through the County’s fiscal year (July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012).

 

 

Review Process

The grant review process consists of a five-member Executive Review Panel that will convene monthly, or more frequently as the need arises, to review and evaluate complete applications from non-profit organizations.  Funding decisions will be based upon an evaluation of the following criteria – cost benefit, public benefit, strength of the organization, and overall strength of the proposal.
