Maryland Economic Resilience Resources
Maryland has been hit by multiple disasters, including COVID-19 and two thousand-year floods, in the past five years. Since 2003, there have been ten U.S. billion-dollar disasters that have affected Maryland and prompted Presidential Disaster Declarations in the state, such as COVID-19. Together, these disasters have accrued a total of $1.2 billion in public assistance costs for Maryland.
This resource page is designed to help businesses, chambers of commerce, economic development organizations, and emergency management offices recover from these and/or other disasters and to promote future economic resilience.
These services build on the 2020-2021 Maryland Economic Resilience and Disaster Recovery workshop series, co-hosted by ISD and the Howard County Economic Development Authority, and made possible by a generous grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
