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.
