Outreach Grants

The City of Bowie offers funding, through the Community Outreach Committee (COC), for individuals and organizations that have plans to implement a program that will help meet the needs of City of Bowie residents.

Grants are awarded for projects or programs in areas such as social service, youth, senior citizens, and/or mental health issues that offer assistance to or address the needs of Bowie residents. The maximum amount that will be awarded for any grant is $5,000. Although applicants need not be City of Bowie residents, the grant program for which they are seeking funds must directly benefit City residents.

Grant applications are usually accepted in the late spring/early summer. Information about the 2019-2020 Outreach Grant Program and application deadline will be posted here soon.
