About Grants

A grant is a way that Baltimore County Government funds your ideas and projects that provide public services and stimulate the economy. Grants support critical recovery initiatives, innovative research and many other programs, and is one of the ways that local government redistributes resources to eligible recipients. A grant is an award that is not required to be paid back and does not accrue interest. Loans are different, as those must be paid back and often accrue interest.

How to Apply

You may apply to whichever programs you are eligible.

  1. Determine Eligibility

    Grants will have varying eligibility requirements listed in their descriptions. For questions, contact the issuing department.

  2. Complete and Submit Required Paperwork

    Complete and submit a grant application, request for financial assistance (example only), certificate of nondiscrimination and any other required forms/documentation in the manner listed in the grant announcement by the deadline listed in the announcement.

  3. Review the Selection Process

    Each grant program has its own criteria for determining awards. Review the grant program you are interested to learn about the awarding department’s selection process.
