The Mini Grants Program for Community Engagement is designed to engage Maryland residents in activities that enhance communities, engage residents, and improve natural resources. The Trust encourages projects that seek to accomplish multiple benefits, such as meeting community goals and improving environmental health. This objective can be met through applications from organizations new to environmental work, groups engaging audiences through on-the-ground-work, and new creative partnerships. The Trust will consider funding elements of projects that may not have a primarily environmental purpose but that have an ultimate connection or potential to improve natural resources.

This grant program does not support applications for school-related projects. Applicants interested in Environmental Education projects targeting Pre-K-12 students should refer to the Mini Grant Application Package for K-12 Environmental Education requests available at
