A Model ARPA Grant Program from Maryland Nonprofits
Nonprofit organizations can be ideal partners in helping local governments to achieve their goals in numerous policy areas.
Maryland Nonprofits’ “Model Grant Program” is designed to make it easy for governments to develop and manage a grant program – even if they do not have a lot of experience in this area. This model grant process is customizable; it allows for direct grantmaking or partnering with an intermediary, like a community foundation or charitable trust, to run the process.
By using our process guide and sample attachments, local jurisdictions can quickly stand up a grantmaking process or add a layer to their current grantmaking process to ensure that Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Relief Fund (CSLFRF) funding is efficiently and equitably distributed in their communities.
The Maryland Nonprofits Model Grant Program is available for use by local governments and nonprofits without charge, with attribution to Maryland Nonprofits.
