State of Maryland Non-Entitlement Unit of Local Government Technical Assistance Program – Resources and Information
In June 2021, the State of Maryland launched a Technical Assistance Program to support Non-Entitlement Units (NEUs) of Local Government with their management and administration of Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CLFRF). The main objective of the Program is to strengthen NEUs’ capacity to successfully plan and implement these resources by helping them understand the eligibility, reporting, and compliance requirements associated with CLFRF. 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. Please check back for regular programmatic updates.
Register Now for Our Upcoming IIJA Webinar
The IIJA was passed into law in 2021 and consists of nearly 400 distinct funding opportunities across a range of issues, many of which include funding for local governments—from broadband internet to clean water infrastructure programs, to resilience, and more. It is historic in its size – the largest ever investments in broadband, rail and transit, clean energy, and water, among others– as well as the breadth of programs and sectors included in the law.
To support Maryland’s municipalities in familiarizing themselves with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the NEU Technical Assistance Program will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday, March 14th at 12:00pm EST. This webinar will provide a general introduction to IIJA and information on how to consider approaching this new funding stream.
Find additional information related to IIJA funding, please see IIJA resources below.
Office Hours Program
The State is hosting weekly office hours in order to provide NEUs with an additional channel to ask questions, connect with other NEUs, or submit feedback.
