Maryland Department of General Services Awards $58 Million of Grant Funding to Maryland Medical & Higher Education Institutions

BALTIMORE, MD – The Hogan administration today announced the approval of seven capital grants to three higher education institutions and three medical institutions, totaling over $58 million dedicated to fostering essential capital projects. The grants are administered through the Maryland Department of General Services’ Capital Grants Division. 

“Maryland has some of the best higher education and medical institutions in the nation, and it is critical that we always look for ways to build upon that success,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Every Maryland citizen deserves higher education and medical institutions that can provide quality education and healthcare, and the capital funding approved today helps to fulfill those goals.”

The recipients of the funding are: Community College of Baltimore County, Harford Community College, Prince George’s Community College, Capital Region Medical Center, R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, and the Comprehensive Cancer and Organ Transplant Treatment Center.

“The awarded grants will allow these institutions to renovate, expand, implement needed repairs, and construct additions and upgrades,” said General Services Secretary Ellington E. Churchill Jr. “General Services takes pride in promoting and supporting the medical and higher education institutions of our great state.”

The overall objective for all of the organizations is for the capital grant funds to help their organizations renovate, expand, and/or update their existing facilities in order to amplify their organization’s services.

The Community College of Baltimore County’s grant totaling $626 thousand will help with the removal and replacement of the roof membranes of the CCBC Catonsville Humanities Hall and the CCBC Essex Mathematics & Science Hall. 

Harford Community College is using their $857 thousand grant to assist in the renovation and expansion of the Chesapeake Center. The renovations will include a modern performing arts center, expanded conference space, and a visitor center, a food service facility, and enrollment services. 

Prince George’s Community College’s grant totaling $12 million will help with renovating the Marlboro Hall and construct an addition to correct numerous building systems and space deficiencies in the over 40 year old building and provide appropriate educational and support spaces for the liberal arts, social science & business, mathematics, and learning foundation programs. 

Prince George’s Community College is receiving an additional $9 million grant to assist with the renovations and addition of the Queen Anne Academic Center. The project will correct space and building deterioration issues by adding needed classroom, lab, office, study, tutoring, and support space dedicated to performing and communication arts. 

Capital Region Medical Center’s grant totaling $29 million will help with funding the design, construction, renovation, and capital equipping of a new Regional Medical Center in Prince George’s County. The prime contractor of the initiative is Clarke Construction and more than 35 minority business enterprise subcontractors will be participating in this project.

R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center is using their $3 million grant to assist with completing phase three of the renovation of the center to replace major mechanical systems, modernize patient rooms, and upgrade the infrastructure and technological systems to enhance the Medical Center’s ability to provide quality care. The project has achieved a 22.4% minority business participation level that includes seven women-owned business enterprises.

Through their $4 million grant, Comprehensive Cancer and Organ Transplant Treatment Center will be expanding the facility to house additional clinical programs. This project will also expand and renovate the North Hospital and provide necessary support space for clinical training and staff needs.
