Friends of Maryland’s Olmsted Parks and Landscapes (FMOPL) has created a small grant opportunity to support projects tied to the Olmsted 200 celebration within the state of Maryland.

FMOPL is committed to advancing the legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted and his championing of accessible public parks, sustainable landscapes, and livable communities. As a proud partner of Olmsted 200, it aims to ensure that Maryland is a vital part of the celebration by connecting as many people and communities as possible.

The small grants offered are designed to be flexible and fill in where other available funding may not fully cover program or event costs. The organization is particularly interested in supporting activities that connect new communities to Olmsted’s legacy and demonstrate Olmsted design principles. Educators and schools, libraries, after-school programs, and Park Friends groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
