Local nonprofit organizations impacted by the current health pandemic are urged to apply for grant funds through the Worcester County Nonprofits Grant Recovery Program. Applications will be accepted through June 1, 2021.
Grant Recovery Applications can be obtained online at www.co.worcester.md.us under Important Links. All completed applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before June 1, 2021.
“Nonprofit organizations that are physically located in Worcester County will be eligible to apply for grant funds,” Worcester County Senior Budget Accountant Kim Reynolds said. “Grant funds may be used for reimbursable expenses occurring from March 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021 provided that COVID relief or other funding has not already been applied to those expenses.”
Applicants should thoroughly review eligibility requirements and show there is a need for funding directly or indirectly related to the pandemic. Submitting an incomplete or inaccurate application may render an applicant ineligible for program funding.
Funds of $172,937 for the Local Nonprofits Grant Recovery Program were awarded to Worcester County as part of Maryland Recovery Now Funds issued through the Department of Housing and Community Development. Grant awards will be announced on or before June 30. For additional information, contact Reynolds by email or at (410) 632-1194.
