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. 
Community Outreach grants are awarded in areas of social services, senior citizens, and mental health. Project examples may be activities centered around diversity, mental health workshops, cultural education, physical health (exercise or healthy eating classes), senior citizens, youth, and other community-centered programs.  

This year $15,000 is available to be awarded to successful applicants through a competitive selection process. The maximum amount that will be awarded for any grant is $5,000. Although applicants need not live within the municipal limits of Bowie, the grant program for which they are seeking funds must directly benefit City of Bowie residents. 

The Bowie Grant Application Online Clinic will be held Monday, August 28, 2023, at 7 p.m., to assist applicants with the application process. Interested parties are strongly encouraged to join the virtual meeting.  
The deadline to apply for a Community Outreach Grant is September 18, 2023, at 5 p.m. Please review and complete the Grant Application.
