Baltimore, MD (May 15, 2012) – The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) today announced that it has awarded a $50,000 grant to the Hagerstown-Washington County Industrial Foundation to help develop an Economic Development Strategic Plan (EDSP). The plan, expected to be completed by November, will help expand Washington County’s economic base by guiding smart investments, attracting new businesses and creating jobs to ensure high-paying jobs for future generations.
Money to develop a marketing plan for Hagerstown Regional Airport will be the county’s top priority for grant funds from the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided Tuesday.
The project is one of six the commissioners agreed to submit for consideration for an anticipated $1.3 million to be distributed between three Western Maryland counties for fiscal 2013.
The county is seeking $75,000 in ARC funds for the marketing plan, or half of the $150,000 estimated cost.
