On behalf of the Allegany County Commissioners, the Allegany County Local Development Council will be accepting requests from Allegany County non-profits and municipalities for funding received from the Rocky Gap slots revenue that is shared with Allegany County.
Allegany County receives 3.75% of the slots revenues generated from the casino operation at Rocky Gap. According to State of Maryland Law, 20% of this revenue must be spent on capital requests from Allegany County municipalities and non-profits. Awards will be made after a recommendation is made from a sub-committee of the Allegany County Local Development Council – a 15 member panel that makes spending recommendations to the Allegany County Commissioners. For more information on these funds and the Local Development Council please visit - https://alleganygov.org/DocumentCenter/View/2768
To request funding, please submit a letter of request to Jason Bennett, CPA Director of Finance for Allegany County and Chairperson of the Allegany County Local Development Council at 701 Kelly Road Suite 205 Cumberland MD 21502. The letter should contain information concerning your non-profit or municipality status in Allegany County, your mission or purpose, a description of the capital needs that you have and a total amount requested. Please note that these funds may only be disbursed for capital-related items and that disbursements cannot be made for operating requests. The deadline for submitting your request will be January 31, 2020. All requests will be reviewed by the council and awards will be announced and disbursed in the spring to early summer of 2020.
