OCS is seeking community based organizations to work with us to develop programs that build resilient, empowered communities in Annapolis. This funding will support projects that have hands-on outreach and engagement strategies responding directly to a community need. We are looking for organizations that will be catalysts for change by being present, developing long term relationships and building trust with community members. An individualized and on the ground approach is critical for approval of funds.
