From Gaming Revenue to Community Service, Diversity in Grants Counts

In their Second Annual Local Impact Grants Awards Ceremony July 25, the Office of the County Executive and the Prince George’s County Local Development Council (PGCLDC) awarded 11 area non-profit organizations for their service (click here for photos).

The funds, from MGM National Harbor, are a state law that mandates gaming facilities commit a portion of their revenue for use primarily in communities in immediate proximity to National Harbor.  

“I want to thank the PGCLDC for their leadership and stewardship and congratulate the 2018 recipients of the Prince George’s County Local Development Council grants,” said Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III. “These grants are designed to assist people and communities in the vicinity of MGM National Harbor. The PGCLDC did a great job of selecting a diverse group of organizations that address a variety of challenges which range from mentoring and education of youth to organizations that provide resources with our senior community and those with disabilities. When we supported bringing the world class MGM National Harbor resort to Prince George’s County, we created an innovative and robust Community Benefits Agreement with MGM. In this agreement, we laid out clear goals and expectations for MGM to…and provide resources to our county, and, specifically, the communities that surround the National Harbor facility. I am appreciative that MGM National Harbor has continued to honor the commitments they made to the residents of Prince George’s County.”
