The Montgomery County Council believes that a strong partnership with nonprofit organizations is critical to meeting County objectives and the needs of our residents.

Through a formal annual application process the Council accepts funding requests from nonprofit organizations that provide services in Montgomery County to County residents. A community Grants Advisory Group appointed by the County Council assists in the review process through evaluations of proposals. This Group will be augmented by members of the following community groups:  The Montgomery Cares Advisory Group, WorkSource Montgomery, The Interagency Commission on Homelessness and The Montgomery County Food Council. The Council makes decisions on the funding of proposals as part of its actions on the County Operating Budget.

The Council accepts applications for programs and projects that advance the County's services, goals, and objectives, including, but not limited to the following areas: community development, economic development, education, health and human services, and recreation.
