Application Process

Review the Requirements

  • Only nonprofit organizations that provide services to Rockville residents are eligible to apply. Organizations providing services outside of Rockville can apply if funds requested will be used for Rockville city residents or a challenge within the city. Your program design, progress report, and final report should show this. Rockville city limits and Rockville postal codes are not the same. View the Rockville Address and Residency Checker.
  • Grant funds do not reimburse project expenses from prior program years.
  • Organizations that provide human services can apply to receive funding for a Human Services Nonprofit Grant (but not from both grant programs at the same time without advance outreach to the city). If you are not sure which grant is the best choice for your group, please contact Frederika Granger ( or Abraham Bruckman (
