How to Apply for Grants

Homeless Services, Public Services and Capital Project Fiscal Year 2021 Grant Applications

Baltimore County announces grant opportunities for Fiscal Year 2021 funding. Nonprofit and government organizations serving County citizens are eligible to apply for grant monies in three areas:

  • Homeless Services—Projects preventing homelessness or assisting those currently homeless
  • Public Services—Projects that address needs of low-income citizens in the area of employment, child care, health, education, substance abuse and welfare
  • Capital Projects—Projects that serve people with disabilities or meet general community development needs

Generally, grants range in size from $15,000 to $200,000 annually. The County encourages applications from both new organizations and those who have previously received grant funds.

Please pass this information on to any organizations serving County citizens who you believe may be interested in providing comments during our public hearing or those interested in grant funding for Fiscal Year 2021.

The links below allow applicants to download the necessary grant application documents for Fiscal Year 2021 funding made available through federal, state and County funds.
