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.
In efforts to continue supporting and developing programs that will build community resilience and support systems for families, we are are funding community based organizations to open, expand and/or enhance specialty programs that provide structured activities for youth with adult oversight at a physical location that develop physical, emotional, social, behavioral, and/or intellectual capacities for youth.
The purpose of the forum was to identify legislative priorities for the Latino community. The City of Annapolis issued a report based on the forum’s findings. The report will be the guiding document for local government action and to assist the 2023 Maryland General Assembly in prioritizing legislative action.
