Maryland Local Government Grants Contacts

Compiled by the Maryland Grants Office. For Corrections, please email

In addition to its network of state agency grants administrators, the Governor’s Grants Office has cultivated a wide network throughout the State of people who serve as grants resource specialists at the county and/or municipal level and at school systems and community colleges. Each Department of Social Services (DSS), part of the state’s Department of Human Resources, has a primary contact on grants issues. Most counties in Maryland are now served by a community foundation to serve the needs of its community. Local Management Boards (LMBs) help prioritize local spending decisions for children. Some public libraries offer grant information. Volunteer Centers can be invaluable for moving along projects.

While all of these resources can potentially be a source of funding, they often will play a more valuable role in helping to build additional partnerships. What follows is a compilation of these resources, listed by county.
