he Maryland Governor's Grants Office has issued its 2011 annual report of Federal funds that flow into Maryland. In keeping with Governor Martin O'Malley's policy of transparency in state government, the 2011 Annual Report of Federal Funds to Maryland is presented entirely online at the Grants Office website www.grants.maryland.gov. The report identifies and describes all Federal grants, including American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grants, received by Maryland State agencies. "I am pleased that Maryland state agencies are working to make our state government more open and accountable by demonstrating how federal tax dollars are flowing back to the State of Maryland," said Governor Martin O'Malley. "These efforts have ensured that we are effectively competing for federal grant dollars, and pursuing funds that will have the largest positive impact on the greatest number of Maryland citizens." Governor's Grants Office Director Eric Brenner said, "Any organization, be it a local government or non-profit, that is interested in receiving federal grant money really needs to pay attention to this report. The vast majority of federal grant funds distributed in Maryland first pass through State agencies via these 520 federal grants. The federal grant totals received directly by local governments and non-profits is a much smaller amount."
