MEA Sets Aside USD 1 Million for Offshore Wind Grant Programs

Source: MEA

The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has allocated a combined USD 1 million for two new grant programs specifically targeting the offshore wind industry.

The programs are the Offshore Wind Business Development Grant Program and the Offshore Wind Workforce Development Grant Program.

The programs are open to emerging businesses, including minority emerging businesses, non-profits, and State, local, and municipal governments and their agencies/institutions.

The Offshore Wind Business Development Grant Program supports Maryland’s emerging businesses, including minority owned emerging businesses looking to participate in the global offshore wind industry. MEA seeks to jumpstart Maryland’s offshore wind supply chain by providing grant funding to help offset upfront barrier costs in two key areas: market entry assistance and capital expenditures & facilities upgrades.

The Offshore Wind Workforce Development Grant Program will provide grant funding on a competitive basis to ensure Maryland has a ready and able workforce capable of contributing to the construction, installation, and operations & maintenance of an offshore wind energy project.
