We fund nonprofits meeting the areas of greatest need in Frederick County through strategic grants. These needs have been identified in The Frederick County Human Needs Assessment Report. Since 2011 when the first strategic grants were made, more than $1.6 million has been invested into these areas.
Currently, we are funding high impact projects that:
- reduce emergency department visits
- prevent homelessness and help the newly homeless
- improve school readiness for young children
The focus of strategic grant funding may change as new data becomes available.
