The Office of the Mayor and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation have partnered to create a funding opportunity for small nonprofits that provide direct services to low-income individuals and families in Baltimore City. 

The Baltimore City Community Grants Program will provide grants of up to $10,000 per year and a maximum of two years for general operating support, program support, equipment, and capacity building (e.g., evaluation and audit costs). 

Mayor Catherine E. Pugh remarked, “Empowering those who are doing the work of lifting-up others in our  community is essential as we address violence reduction and the causes that lead to violence. This new Community Grants Program is a direct result of our Call to Action initiative that brings together people committed to being part of the solution to reduce violence and strengthen Baltimore’s neighborhoods. The grants will provide much-needed resources to organizations that otherwise may not have the capability to compete in a competitive grant application process, but which are nonetheless appropriately established, well-organized, and have a clear mission to make a positive difference.”
