State of Maryland Municipal Technical Assistance Program (MTAP) – Resources and Information

In June 2021, the Maryland Department of Budget and Management (DBM) launched a Technical Assistance Program to support Non-Entitlement Units (NEUs) of Local Government with their management and administration of their Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CLFRF) awards. In October 2022, DBM alerted participating municipalities that the Technical Assistance Program would expand to serve all Maryland municipalities and assist them with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, in addition to maintaining CLFRF support. For more information on IIJA-specific technical assistance, please reference the IIJA Resources page.
The main objective of the Technical Assistance Program is to strengthen Maryland municipalities’ capacity to successfully plan and implement these resources by helping them understand the eligibility, reporting, and compliance requirements associated with CLFRF and IIJA programs. This landing page gathers and summarizes guidance and resources made available by the State of Maryland as well as guidance published by the US Treasury Department and other Federal Agencies. Please check back for regular programmatic updates.

If you have any questions specific to how your community can use CLFRF or IIJA funding, please use the Question Submission Portal to submit it to MTAP and someone from our team will follow up with specific guidance.

Office Hours Program

The State is hosting weekly office hours in order to provide Maryland municipalities with an additional channel to ask questions, connect with other municipal governments, or submit feedback. The Maryland Municipal Technical Assistance team will be available this month during Office Hours to answer any questions you may have relating to CLFRF or IIJA.
Office Hours are currently held weekly on Tuesday from 10-11am.
