FY22 Community Grant Update
Considering the Montgomery County's difficult financial context and based on discussions between Council staff and the Office of Management and Budget, the FY22 Community Grants process will:
- Attempt to maintain FY21 funding levels in FY22 for all Community Grant NDA and base shifted programs, subject to affordability;
- Not consider any new programs or program enhancements for FY22;
- Reduce the administrative burden on nonprofits by forgoing an FY22 application process;
OMB and departments will review existing reporting for each program and, if necessary, will make recommendations to the County Executive for:
- potential reductions
- additional shifts into base budgets.
Organizations or programs that are found to be no longer in compliance or meeting their contractual obligations will lose funding. The County Executive will include specific recommendations for renewal of FY21 programs in his FY22 Recommended Budget on March 15, 2020. The County Council will manage their own review of recommendations and finalize awards in the FY22 budget resolution in May.
Contract Monitors will be reaching out to FY21 grant recipients as needed. An application or reporting will not be collected through this platform.
