Montgomery County ED/GE Grant

Attention: ED/GE funding has been partially reinstated for 2021.  $1.25 million (50% of normal funding) will be made available but only for the fall cycle.  Please stay tuned for program updates.

Montgomery County’s Economic Development/Government Equity (ED/GE) Grant Program, is designed to benefit companies that create and retain local jobs by investing in their growth in Montgomery County.  The competitive program distributes grant monies twice a year (spring and fall) to finance permanent improvement projects (new building construction, renovation, power upgrades, plumbing, parking, etc.)

Projects are evaluated by a committee of public and private representatives that evaluate the number and quality of the jobs created, the capital investment, as well as the impact each project has on the community.

Please note that this is a unique grant program in that the local jurisdictions apply for funding on behalf of companies. We encourage you to work with our team and your local jurisdiction to see if this funding opportunity is right for your project.

Please contact our staff to learn more about the ED/GE process and other resources to help your company!
