Hyattsville Grant Opportunities
Thrive Grant Program
Part of the Health, Wellness, and Recreation Advisory Committee’s mission is to coordinate community engagement initiatives to encourage healthy lifestyles. It is essential that these initiatives are not just created for the City of Hyattsville community but that they are initiated and developed by the Hyattsville community as well. The Thrive Grants program is intended to foster community participation in promoting health, wellness, and recreation activities in the City of Hyattsville. Applicants can apply for up to $800 per project. PLEASE NOTE that an incorrect maximum award amount was listed in the Hyattsville September Reporter.
This program will fund initiatives created by individuals, organizations, and businesses that live, work, play, and thrive in the city. Examples include but are not limited to, projects or initiatives promoting and engaging residents in healthy eating, promoting and engaging residents in active living, promoting and engaging residents in designing healthy communities, or developing public awareness campaigns.
Applications are reviewed by the City’s Health, Wellness, and Recreation Advisory Committee and then submitted to the Mayor and City Council for approval of awards. Funds are dispersed in early spring and must be spent by June 30 of each year.

Education Enrichment Grant Program
The City of Hyattsville’s Education Enrichment Grant Program is an annual grant opportunity in support of Hyattsville’s public schools, students, and community. Grants of up to $500 are available to fund programming and activities that enhance and enrich student opportunities and education. Past grant recipients have expanded STEM learning, promoted cultural sensitivity and inclusivity, and supported academic and student development.
Special notice: Suggested safe alternatives include, but are not limited to, virtual guest speakers, online programming, and materials for special at-home student projects. If you do propose any in-person programming, including in-person pick up of materials or drive through events, please indicate in the application how staff, students, volunteers, and community members will be adequately protected from virus exposure. Grants are not intended to fund items that are normally provided by Prince George’s County Public Schools, such as copier paper, staffing, etc.
The grant program is open to public elementary, middle, and high schools that have attendance boundaries within the City of Hyattsville. Those schools include Bladensburg High, Northwestern Evening High, Northwestern High, Hyattsville Middle, Nicholas Orem Middle, William Wirt Middle, Felegy Elementary, Hyattsville Elementary, Rogers Heights Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary, and University Park Elementary. Applications are welcome from eligible schools and school principals, teachers, staff, students, community members and parent-teacher organizations are eligible to apply. There is no limit to the number of applications schools and organizations may submit, but all applications must be independent of each other (i.e., a school cannot submit two $500 applications for the same project).
Applications are reviewed by the City’s Education Advisory Committee and then submitted to the Mayor and City Council for approval of awards. Funds are typically dispersed in February and must be spent prior to the end of the school year.
