Maryland Local Government Contacts

In addition to its network of state agency grants administrators, the Governor’s Grants Office has

    create 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, the mission of each being to serve the needs of a particular community. Local Management Boards (LMBs) help prioritize local spending decisions for children. Cooperating Collections are sponsored by the Foundation Center and encourage more detailed grants research. And 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.
