An MCPS small grant is a school-based grant that must meet the following requirements:

  •  Amount of the grant is less than $20,000 
  • Cannot require restricted annual financial reporting
  •  Cannot require cash or in-kind match nor a commitment of MCPS resources
  •  Cannot be used to employ personnel, other than substitutes, in the schools during the regular school day A grant that does not meet the requirements listed above is a supported project grant and must be managed at the central office level (Central Office Grant).

A grant that has a tax status eligibility requirement, such as a 501(c)(3) organization, does not meet the requirements for an MCPS grant and may be managed by the MCPS Educational Foundation, Inc., (MCPS EFI Grant).
