Description

The Montgomery County Council is seeking applicants for positions on its Fiscal Year 2020 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 with resumes from applicants must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, November 2.


The Council believes that a strong partnership with non-profit organizations is critical in meeting the County’s needs. The Council has established a grants process in which the Council accepts applications from non-profit organizations seeking funds, forwards proposals to the Grants Advisory Group for advice and comments and makes funding decisions during its spring budget deliberations.


The Grants Advisory Group will be appointed in December and be asked to report to the Council by the end of April 2019. The Council will designate the chair of the Grants Advisory Group. Panel members will need to attend training sessions and review relevant materials during late January and February. The application review process 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. It is expected that each member will review approximately 20 - 25 applications. Panel members should anticipate approximately six to eight meetings between late January and early-April, with the potential for weekly meetings in March.


Applicants for the Grants Advisory Group may not be employees of a non-profit organization applying for Council grant funding. Applications will be accepted from board members and 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 and include any non-profit board affiliations to: Council President Hans Riemer, Montgomery County Council, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850 or via email to County.Council@montgomerycountymd.gov.


Letters of interest with resumes must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, November 2. Questions regarding the Grants Advisory Group should be directed to the Council Grants Manager at 240-777-7935 or council.grants@montgomerycountymd.gov.
