More Funding for Projects in Montgomery County

More Funding for Projects in Montgomery County

Capital Budget Subcommittee of the Maryland House Appropriations Committee last week recommended new and additional funding for projects throughout the State and Montgomery County. Recommendations include items that were listed as Joint Priorities of the Montgomery County Executive and Council at the beginning of the 2022 Maryland General Assembly legislative session. The funds, together with funds previously allocated from the Maryland Senate, ensure that key Montgomery County projects will be able to make significant progress in the upcoming fiscal year.

Allocated funding includes:

“These projects are critical components of our economic development strategies and will support the County’s future growth, sustainability efforts, community equity and educational opportunities,” said County Executive Marc Elrich. “Most importantly, each of the projects will help to enhance the quality of life in Montgomery County for all our residents and businesses. We appreciate the hard work of the entire Montgomery County House Delegation during this year’s General Assembly Session. We are grateful to Marc Korman, House Delegation Chair and Chair of the House Appropriations Transportation and Environment Subcommittee, and to House Majority Leader Eric Luedtke for working with our House Delegation to ensure the County’s needs were met.”
