The Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA), including Heritage Montgomery, works to support programs and projects that encourage heritage tourism and enhance the visitor experience.  Two grant programs specifically are available through Heritage Montgomery.  HM Mini-Grants of up to $2,500 are available to county non-profits that promote economic development through tourism.  The MHAA Grant Program funds both capital and non-capital projects of non-profit groups in the heritage area that support related activities.
