The Prince George’s County Local Development Council (PGCLDC) today announced the opening of the FY 2020 Local Impact Grant application period. The Local Impact Grant Program supports non-profits that serve Prince George’s County in the defined impact area around MGM National Harbor.
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 PGCLDC also consults with the County on the following:
- The development of a multi-year plan for the expenditure of local impact grant funds.
- The development of a comprehensive transportation plan for the gaming facility.
According to a press release:
Organizations interested in receiving funding must submit their application via email at PGCLDCGrants@co.pg.md.us and by mail or hand delivery by Monday, December 16, 2019. Email applications without five hard copies received by mail or hand delivery will NOT be accepted, and any application submitted after the deadline will be disqualified from competitive review.
WHO CAN APPLY? Non-profits located or providing services within the defined three-mile radius surrounding MGM National Harbor gaming facility in Prince George’s County.
