The Guide also provides an overview of several different applications corresponding with these levels of support. Before completing this form, make sure you have selected the application that is the best match with your needs and qualifications.

  2. Please read the Sample Review Sheet for Operating Grant Applications, available online, to see how your application will be scored by the Grant Review Panel. 60% of your score will be based on your organization’s service to the Greenbelt community, and 40% of your score will be based on your organizational effectiveness.

Some materials will need to be uploaded in PDF format; if you need assistance, please contact the Recreation Department Administrative Coordinator. Instructions are provided below for naming your PDF files; you may substitute a commonly used acronym – such as “CHEARS” – in place of the full name of the organization where indicated in the format.
