Maryland–National Capital Area grants
Helping moms and babies in Maryland and the National Capital Area
The March of Dimes uses gifts wisely and funds programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. Each year, we award grants to external organizations across our chapter to address unmet maternal and infant health needs.
Our community grants are one way the March of Dimes pursues its mission of saving babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. See our current grants and past awards to learn the types of programs and research grants we fund.
Prior to completing an application for chapter grant funding, potential applicants must participate in a grant training call (typically held in July) and inform us of your intent to apply.
