The RAINY DAY FUND is a resource to provide opportunities for the participants of public and private agencies and organizations to fund creative needs for individual children. Any public or private agency serving children in Queen Anne's County can apply for funding on behalf of their client through the Queen Anne’s County Local Care Team.
How to request funds:
An agency or organization representative should fill out the form located below which includes the name of the child, the service provider and their name and address, the amount being requested and a brief description of how the funds will be used. Additional forms can be accessed by going to CommunityPartnerships.info and click on “LCT”
With this application, a letter from the agency or organization requesting the funds should be attached. That letter should include:
A breakdown of how the funding will be spent (i.e. line item)
An explanation of why funding is not available through other means.
What the intended goal is of the service provided by the funding.
A description of how it will be determined if that goal was met.
This request should be presented to the Queen Anne’s County Local Care Team (“LCT”). It can be faxed to: 410-758-6904 or scanned and emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. You may also fill out the application electronically by going to CommunityPartnerships.info.
Requests for $750 or lower will be voted on electronically by the members of the LCT and responses will be known relatively quickly. A simple majority of “approve” votes is required for the application to be funded and the funds must be available. Any amount greater than $750 will need to be presented in person before the Local Care Team. The LCT meets the 4th Thursday of every month.
Items funded should be considered “one-time expenses” or they will not be funded. The only exception to that rule is if there is a clear financial strategy to continue the service once the LCT Rainy Day Funds have been exhausted.
If approved by the Local Care Team, the request would be processed and the check disbursed to the agency requesting funds within two weeks of the Team's approval.
