Montgomery County Public Health Emergency Grant (PHEG) Program

Montgomery County Government’s Public Health Emergency Grant (PHEG) program is designed to benefit for-profit businesses, nonprofit organizations, sole proprietors, and independent contractors, which includes individual artists and scholars, as well as arts and humanities organizations. This program is intended to supplement Federal and State programs currently providing financial assistance due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

The PHEG is a county program and is not administered by the Arts and Humanities Council; however, AHCMC has partnered with the county to offer technical assistance and support to the arts and humanities sector. If you have questions or require any assistance gathering your materials or completing the application, please email

As this is not an AHCMC funding opportunity, please do not e-mail or call the grants department directly
