This week, the City has announced the Community Services grant for the fiscal year 2018.

The purpose of City’s Community Services Grant is to provide opportunities for community-based programs and projects within the City of College Park. The City believes that supporting community activities enhances the community as a whole. The City will provide grants to fund programs and activities that promote enhanced community opportunities for its residents. Community services grants are only awarded to organizations, not to individuals.

Review and award of grants will be based on the program’s measurable impact on the City of College Park and its residents. Collaboration with other organizations and availability of outside funding (from sources other than the City grant) is encouraged. During the grant review process, points will be awarded for various criteria (as identified on the application form). Upon final decision on the grant application by the City Council, you will be notified of the result.
A Mayor & Council-appointed subcommittee will review the grant applications and make a grant award recommendation to the full Council. Worksession review of community services grant applications by Mayor & Council will be scheduled following subcommittee review.

All grant applications must be received no later than Friday, December 29, 2017 at 5:00 pm, addressed as follows:
