MECU Neighborhood Event Grants

Each year, the MECU Neighborhood Event Grants program awards cash grants to Baltimore neighborhood associations and community-based non-profit organizations for the purpose of producing special events. Thanks to the support of MECU, Baltimore’s credit union, eligible groups can receive up to $1,000 to produce an event for the community and residents they serve, such as art workshops, back-to-school rallies, block parties, book drives, food drives, health fairs and neighborhood clean-ups.
