Non-profit organizations serving the impact area surrounding MGM National Harbor are encouraged to apply
Largo, MD – The Prince George’s County Local Development Council (PGCLDC) announced today the release of the FY 2019 Local Impact Grant application. The Local Impact Grant Program is for non-profits that serve Prince George’s County in the defined impact area around MGM National Harbor. Local, non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations are encouraged to apply for funding that will assist them in providing community-based programs and services within the three-mile radius around the MGM National Harbor gaming facility. Working with non-profits, the PGCLDC hopes to positively impact residents and communities in the affected area.
Organizations interested in receiving funding must submit their application via email at PGCLDCGrants@co.pg.md.us and by mail or hand delivery by February 15th. Email applications (without five hard copies received) will NOT be accepted, and any application submitted after the deadline will be disqualified from competitive review.
The PGCLDC, in consultation with the Prince George’s County Office of the County Executive and the Prince George’s County Office of Management and Budget, will offer an optional Grants Workshop on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at the Addison School, 7100 Oxon Hill Road, Oxon Hill Maryland 20745 for those applicants that would like additional information prior to submitting their application. For a list of the FY2018 Awardees, please see this link.
The PGCLDC was created by state law as a mechanism for ensuring the public is engaged and has input into how the government mitigates any negative impacts a new gaming facility may have on the surrounding area. According to state law, each jurisdiction where a gaming license is in operation must establish a local development council. The Prince George’s County Local Development Council also consults with the County on the following:
- The development of a multi-year plan for the expenditure of local impact grant funds, and
- The development of a comprehensive transportation plan for the gaming facility.
Non-profits located or providing services within the defined three-mile radius surrounding MGM National Harbor gaming facility in Prince George’s County.
