March 24, 2013

The Washington County Gaming Commission will begin accepting applications for the 2013 funding cycle beginning April 1.

All qualifying charitable organizations operating in Washington County are encouraged to apply, according to a news release from the county.

Last year, the Washington County Gaming Commission received more than 100 applications requesting approximately $2.4 million. More than $929,000 was allocated to 95 charitable organizations.

Gaming fund application packets are only available online. Application packets containing all of the necessary forms can be found on the county’s website at http://www.washco-md.net/grant_man/index_div.shtm. Click on the “2013 Gaming Fund Application Packet” button.

If an organization does not have access to a computer or the Internet, it may contact the Office of Community Grant Management, the release says. The office will ensure the electronic process does not prevent any organization from applying for funding.

Applications will be posted online beginning April 1. Completed applications must be submitted to the Office of Community Grant Management no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, May 9.
