MSDE Grant Programs

MSDE operates many formula and non-formula grants. All active grant programs are listed below and link directly to the grant program's dedicated webpage. MSDE will continue add to and expand this page as the Department's new Office of Grants Administration and Compliance rolls out. We will also soon update this site to include a link to access information about recently sunset grant programs. Please feel free to direct any grants-related questions to the MSDE Grants email inbox: grants.msde@maryland.gov.

The links below contain program information, including application information, timelines, and annual reporting information. These programs are coordinated at MSDE by the Federal Program Coordination and Administration Branch of the Office of Grants Administration and Compliance.
