With Covid-19 cases on the rise in professional sports and across local schools, MCPS has continued to meet regularly with Montgomery County’s Department of Health and Human Services to discuss Covid-19 health and safety protocols.

Dr. Earl Stoddard, Montgomery County’s Assistant Chief Administrative Officer, has told us that a team of himself, Dr. James Bridgers (Montgomery County Deputy Health Officer), Dr. Raymond Crowel (Director of Montgomery County Health and Human Services), Mr. James D’Andrea (MCPS Chief of Staff) and many others meet weekly, including earlier today.

“Our shared goal is to keep kids safe and keep them in school where they learn best.” said Dr. Stoddard.

“You can expect some additional updates via MCPS over the coming days, but there isn’t a recommendation to radically change in-person education at this time.”


Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services announced the availability of grants of up to $10,000, to support health and human service projects that promote a safe, healthy and self-sufficient community.

The Community Services Grants program provides one-time only grants to non-profit organizations serving Montgomery County residents. The program provides reimbursement to funded organizations for approved equipment and other capital purchases.

They are currently accepting applications for the FY 2021 Community Services Grants Program.   The deadline for submission of the FY 2022 applications is 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.  Application materials are available below.
