awarded by any level of government (Chapter
879, Acts of 1978). The Authority does not com-
pete with private lending institutions since it must
be assured prior to the granting of a loan that
private capital is not available and loans are
made at the prevailing market rate. Recipient
firms, historically small in size and brief in experi-
ence, are usually considered "high risk"
businesses by the private lender. The Maryland
Small Business Development Financing Authority
is governed by five appointed directors, in addi-
tion to the Secretary of the Department of Eco-
nomic and Community Development and either
the State Treasurer or Comptroller. The functions
of the Authority relate entirely to federal, State,
and local contracts.

cooperative economic, social, and cultural develop-
ment agency within Allegany, Garrett, and Wash-
ington counties by developing a comprehensive de-
velopment plan for the region served; providing
liaison with local, State, and federal agencies; pre-
paring data and studies to support comprehensive
development planning, including the recommenda-
tion of projects and activities to meet the public
service needs of the region; and providing assis-
tance in the implementation of the State's Appala-
chian development program in the region.

The Council is functioning under a grant from
the Appalachian Regional Commission covering
65 percent of its operating costs.
