Southern Maryland RC&D has several grant information resources available for public use. We recently subscribed to GrantStation, an internet based grant research and information service. Anyone may contact us to set up an appointment to come to the RC&D office and conduct online internet searches for both private and government grant resources. Please contact the RC&D office to schedule an appointment. There is no charge for this service but it may only be accessed at our Waldorf office.

We will regularly post information about available grant resources. Check back frequently for the most up-to-date information. In the meantime, please review the following websites for interesting grant opportunities:
