ROCKVILLE, Md., October 15, 2012—The Montgomery County Council is seeking applicants for positions on its Fiscal Year 2014 Grants Advisory Group. The Council will appoint the volunteer community panel to review grant applications and advise it on proposals received from the non-profit community. Letters of interest from applicants must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15.

The Council believes that a strong partnership with non-profit organizations is critical in meeting the County’s needs. The Council has established a grants process in which the Council accepts applications from non-profit organizations seeking funds, forwards proposals to the Grants Advisory Group for advice and comments and then makes funding decisions during its spring budget deliberations.


It is anticipated that the Grants Advisory Group will be appointed in December and will be asked to report to the Council by the end of April 2013. Panel members will need to attend training sessions and review relevant materials during late January and February. The applications review will take place between March 1 and April 15.


The Grants Advisory Group will be asked to provide the Council with written comments on each of the grant proposals. The workload will vary based on the number of applications received and panel members appointed; however, it is expected that each member would review approximately 20 applications. Panel members should anticipate approximately six-to-eight meetings between the beginning of February and mid-April, with the potential for weekly meetings in March.


Volunteers for the Grants Advisory Group can come from panels reviewing Community Development Block Grants or Community Service Grants, as well as from other advisory boards or community groups. Applicants for the Advisory Group cannot be employees of, or member of a board of, a nonprofit group applying for Council grant funding. The Council will designate the chair of the Advisory Group. ?


Interested applicants living or working in the County should submit their letter of interest with a resume to: Council President Roger Berliner, Montgomery County Council, Stella B. Werner Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, MD 20850 or via email to County.Council@montgomerycountymd.gov.



Letters of interest must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15. Questions regarding the Grants Advisory Group should be directed to Peggy Fitzgerald-Bare, Council Grants Manager at 240-777-7924 or peggy.fitzgerald-bare@montgomerycountymd.gov
