MECU Neighborhood Event Grants

Each year, the MECU Neighborhood Event Grant program awards cash grants to Baltimore neighborhood associations and community-based non-profit organizations for the purpose of producing special events.  Thanks to the support of MECU, Baltimore’s credit union, eligible groups can receive up to $1,000 to produce an event for the community and residents they serve, such as art workshops, back-to-school rallies, block parties, book drives, food drives, health fairs and neighborhood clean-ups.

Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization and based in Baltimore City.  Proposed events must be free and open to the public and take place between June 1 and December 31, 2017.  Grants are awarded on a competitive basis.  Required materials include a completed application, tax exemption documentation, financial statement and project budget.  Grant recipients must attend a workshop, exact date and location to be determined.  

The 2017 MECU Neighborhood Event Grants are produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and made possible by the generous support of MECU and the Baltimore Department of Housing and Community Development.

Application Deadline: Tuesday, December 6, 2016
