Council Seeks Applicants for Grants Advisory Group
The Montgomery County Council is seeking applicants for positions on its Fiscal Year 2015 Grants Advisory Group. The Council will appoint the volunteer community panel to review grant applications and advise it on proposals received from the non-profit community. Letters of interest from applicants must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Nov. 6.
It is anticipated that the Grants Advisory Group will be appointed in December and will be asked to report to the Council by the end of April, 2014. The Council will designate the chair of the Advisory Group.
Panel members will need to attend training sessions and review relevant materials during late January and February. The applications review will take place between late February and April 15.
The Grants Advisory Group will be asked to provide the Council with written comments on each of the grant proposals. The workload will vary based on the number of applications received and panel members appointed. However, it is expected that each member would review approximately 20 applications. Panel members should anticipate approximately six to eight meetings between late January and mid-April, with the potential for weekly meetings in March.
Applicants for the Advisory Group may not be employees of, or members of a board of, a nonprofit group applying for Council grant funding. However, applications will be accepted from members of panels reviewing Community Development Block Grants or Community Service Grants, as well as from other advisory boards or community groups.
Interested applicants living or working in the County should submit their letter of interest with a resume to:
Council President Nancy Navarro
