Thank you for the good work you are doing in Prince George's County as we work together to strengthen our community.

Supporting Non-Profits

Each year the Prince George's County Council appropriates funds to support non-profit organizations throughout the County in the form of Special Appropriation Grants. Each Council Member has their own process for distributing grant funding.

Citizen Advisory Committee

To distribute grants from my office, I have formed a Citizen Advisory Committee to review grant applications and make recommendations. This is a competitive process as each year funding requests far exceed available funds. Priority is given to programs that serve District 3 residents and grants are typically in the range of $500-$1,500. In your application, please be sure to include a description of the work you do with District 3 residents. Letters of support are not required, but may enhance your application.

Past Grant Support

Past grant support from District 3 does not influence future grant funding, but if you have received a District 3 Special Appropriation Grant in the past, please include information about how that money was used.

Applying for FY 2020 Special Appropriations Grant

If you would like to apply for a Fiscal Year 2020 Special Appropriations grant from my office, please visit the Special Appropriation Grant Awards page. Detailed instructions and the FY2020 Special Appropriation Grant Application may be found there. Please note the application and requirements may have been updated from previous years.

Due Date

Complete applications for a District 3 Special Appropriations Grant are due to County Council Grants Coordinator Gary Sabel no later than Monday, September 30, 2019. Please also send an email to Alesha Wilson at to alert my office that your grant application has been submitted to Mr. Sabel.

Reviewing Applications

The Citizen Advisory Committee will meet in the fall to review applications and I anticipate making final decisions by the end of December. You can expect to receive notification of your grant, if any, in early 2020 with funds disbursed Spring 2020.

No later than Monday, September 30, 2019, District 3 grant applications should be mailed or hand-delivered to:

Gary Sabel, Grants Coordinator
Prince George's County Council

Making a Difference

There are many non-profit organizations and individuals in District 3 and throughout Prince George's County that are making a positive difference in the community. I am grateful for the many ways you and the members of our non-profit community serve our residents each and every day.
