Community-Building Grants: Apply by Sept. 30

BreakingGround’s new Community-Building Grant program will award up to $1,000 to UMBC departments and organizations to implement educational and community-building programs relating to social change. Applications are due September 30 for the first round of grants, funded through UMBCServes.

This grant program seeks to encourage campus groups that plan one-time community service projects to transform those programs into forums for the development of civic agency. Proposals should reflect BreakingGround themes and help to position participants to make meaningful, long-term contributions to the campus or surrounding community.
