340/Maryland Manual

provides Maryland's local governments with an ef-
ficient and economic alternative means of access to
capital markets and thereby reduces the interest and
issuance costs. The Administration operates a bond
pool to finance infrastructure projects. Each loan is
a general obligation of the local government.
To facilitate liaison and coordination with the
three western counties, the Office maintains the
Department's Western Maryland regional develop-
ment office in Hagerstown.

Ronald Waters, Acting Manager

Maryland assumed administration of the Small
Cities Community Development Block Grant Pro-
gram in 1987. The Program was formerly under the
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment. The Program funds eligible "nonenridement"
local governments to carry out comprehensive com-
munity development, including housing, economic
development, commercial revitalization, and com-
munity infrastructure. The work must benefit low-
and moderate-income families; help prevent or
eliminate slums and blight; or meet urgent local
community development needs. Funds for special
projects, including imminent threat grants to com-
munities, also are provided by die Program.
The Program uses funds in ways that comple-
ment and extend State assistance programs and
public-private partnerships.

The Maryland Historical Trust was formed in
1961 to preserve, protect, and enhance districts,
sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant in
die prehistory, history, upland and underwater ar-
chaeology, architecture, engineering, and culture of
the State (Chapter 620, Acts of 1961). The Trust
also encourages others in the field and promotes
interest in and study of such matters. In 1970, the
Trust became an agency of the Department of
Economic and Community Development. The
Trust was placed under the Department of Housing
and Community Development in 1987 (Chapter
311, Acts of 1987).
The Trust is authorized to acquire and maintain
properties of historic or architectural merit by gift,
grant, or purchase. Through an easement program,
it holds partial interest in such properties in order
to monitor their condition and appearance without
the necessity of public ownership.
The Trust helps organizations, local govern-
ments, businesses, and individuals restore and ac-
quire historic properties through Scare-funded
grants-in-aid, and a revolving fund loan program.
Matching grants-in-aid from the U.S. Department
of the Interior, National Park Service, are made
through the Trust to support a variety of programs,
including historic resource identification (i.e., sur-
vey), evaluation (i.e., registration), preservation
planning, education, and "Certified Local Govern-
ment" programs.
