Community Organization Funding

FY22 Application Coming Soon!

The Community Organization Funding program is eligible to organizations that are included on the Board of County Commissioners “Recognized Non-Profit List” (Section 1-108 of the Code of Public Local laws) as established by the Board of County Commissioners. For information on how to make application for your organization to be included on this list please contact the County Attorney’s Office at 240-313-2230.

A Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will be sent out annually each Fall to all organizations on the Recognized Non-profit List.  The NOFA will instruct applicants on the procedures to seek funding and the opening and closing application dates for the process.  Funding applications will not be accepted outside of these published dates.

Washington County Community Organization Funding (COF) was established to provide financial support to charitable organizations within Washington County that provide services which improve the community and quality of life for Washington County citizens.  Each year during the budgeting process, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will determine the allocation to be set a side for the Community Organization Fund.  The Office of Grant Management is responsible for the development and implementation of the Community Organization Funding including administration and oversight of the application, award process and management of grantees.

COF was developed to implement a prioritized approach to funding local non-profits based upon addressing the specific needs in the community.  In addition, the fund and its procedures were developed to ensure higher accountability programmatically and fiscally.  Emphasis is on efficient use of funds and achieving results-based programmatic outcomes which positively impact the community.

The Community Organization Funding application packet is composed of the documents below. Each of these documents is in PDF format for which you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. Click here to download a free, up-to-date version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please carefully read the instructions. The application must be saved to your computer before you begin to complete the form.
