MECU Neighborhood Event Grants

MECU Neighborhood Event Grants provide funds to neighborhood associations and community-based nonprofit organizations in Baltimore City for the purpose of producing special events. Grant recipients can receive up to $1,000 to produce community events that revitalize neighborhoods and engage residents, such as back-to-school rallies, block parties, flea markets, health fairs, neighborhood clean-ups, street festivals and talent shows. The MECU Neighborhood Event Grants program is supported by MECU, Baltimore’s Credit Union, and administered by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts.
The deadline for applications is Friday, March 21, 2014 at 5pm.
Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization and based in Baltimore City.  Proposed events must be free and open to the public. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis and judged on the following criteria: the clarity of the objectives for the event and/or project, project design, including budget, and readiness and value of the event.  Required materials include a completed application, tax exemption documentation, financial statement and project budget.  For detailed information regarding the guidelines and requirements for the grant program, please reference the application.
Grant recipients must attend a workshop on Saturday, April 19, 2014 from 10am to 12pm.  The mandatory workshop takes place at the main office of MECU, located at 7 E. Redwood Street, 20th floor, Baltimore, MD.
