O’Malley Releases 2011 Report On Federal Funds

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Governor’s Grants Office has released a report on federal money that comes to state agencies.

The O’Malley administration, in its 2011 annual report released Monday, says Maryland received an all-time high of $10.3 billion in federal grant funds for fiscal year 2011. That’s up from $9.3 billion in fiscal year 2010.

The report includes information on federal grants received in fiscal year 2010 and fiscal year 2011.

The largest new federal grant this year is Race-to-the-Top education funding. Maryland won $124 million in fiscal year 2011. Another $25 million is anticipated for fiscal year 2012.

The state’s Health Care Affordability Act resulted in several new, first time federal grants to different state agencies, as well as organizations outside state government.
