Governor's Grants Office

Welcome to the Governor’s Grants Office. Created in 2004 as an agent of the Governor, the Grants Office helps state agencies, local governments, institutions of higher learning, and nonprofit organizations, find, win, manage, and coordinate grants. 

You will find a host of information and training materials about grants and the life cycle of grants management on this site. You can search for an available state grant or foundation grant and click on links to take you to sites where federal grants are posted. Please note that generally, grants are not made to individuals or small businesses. Sometimes there are exceptions, primarily for artists, scientists, and researchers. 

At this site you also will find extensive data and resources about federal funds flowing into Maryland. We also have included training materials, whether PowerPoints or webinars, on many grant-related topics as well as guidance from the federal government for recipients and subrecipients on how to manage a federal grant. Each year we train thousands of Marylanders on different aspects of grants acquisition and management. 

The Grants Office works with a statewide grants team that includes primary grants contacts in each state agency (see under "Contacts" tab.) In addition, the Grants Office provides resources and technical assistance to state agencies, local governments, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and universities on all aspects of federal grants and federal funds. The Governor's Grants Office measures funds, identifies new funding opportunities, and provides training on grant writing and grants management.
