(BALTIMORE, MARYLAND)  –  The Maryland Sports Commission, through the Maryland Sports Youth and Amateur Sports Grant & Michael Erin Busch Fund, distributed more than $1 million in grants to over 60 youth and amateur sport tourism events throughout the State of Maryland for Fiscal Year 2022.  The State of Maryland operates on a Fiscal Year calendar which runs from July 1st through June 30, meaning the grant funding was awarded to events which happened/ will happen between July 2021 and June 30th of this year.   

“It’s because of this grant that many of our local partners at the DMO (Destination Marketing Organization), CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureaus), and Recreation and Parks-level are able to attract and retain sport tourism events which have an incredible economic impact in their respective communities and regions,” said Terry Hasseltine, Executive Director of the Maryland Sports Commission, adding that Maryland Sports opened the application pool for FY 2023 events (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023) earlier this week.
