County Offers Grants to Nonprofits with Health and Human Services Projects

The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is accepting applications from nonprofits for the Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) Community Services Grants Program. 

The grants being offered by DHHS are targeted to assist nonprofits with health and human services initiatives that “promote a safe, healthy, and self-sufficient community,” a press release said. 

The department will give preference to projects with a focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonprofits can be awarded up to $10,000. 

“These grants are about empowering neighbors to help neighbors,” DHHS Director Dr. Raymond Crowel said in a statement. “At a time when the needs in our community have been greatly exacerbated by the pandemic, I am proud to know that these dollars will go a long way to strengthen our County’s robust social safety net.” 

The Community Services Grants Program is only awarded once to Montgomery County nonprofits and is not renewable. The program also provides assistance to funded organizations for approved expenditures such as equipment and other capital purchases. The funded expenditures must take place between July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023, the county said. 

The last day to submit an application is Friday, Jan. 28 at 5 p.m. Application instructions can be found on the DHHS website
