Allegany County receives 5.5% of the slots revenues generated from the casino operation at Rocky Gap. According to State of Maryland Law, 20% of this revenue must be spent on capital requests from Allegany County municipalities and non-profits. Awards will be made after a recommendation is made from a sub-committee of the Allegany County Local Development Council – a 15 member panel that makes spending recommendations to the Allegany County Commissioners. For more information on these funds and the Local Development Council please visit -  

To request funding, please apply online or submit a letter of request (via email or mail) to: 

Jason Bennett, CPA 
Allegany County Administrator & Chairperson of the Allegany County Local Development Council
701 Kelly Road, Suite 205
Cumberland MD 21502 

The letter should contain information concerning your non-profit or municipality status in Allegany County, your mission or purpose, a description of the capital needs that you have and a total amount requested. Please note that these funds may only be disbursed for capital related items and that disbursements cannot be made for operating requests. The deadline for submitting your request will be May 19, 2023. All requests will be reviewed by the council and awards will be announced and disbursed within approximately six weeks.
