News Release, Maryland Department of Commerce

BALTIMORE, MD (June 25, 2019) – As part of a continuing effort to make Maryland state government faster and easier for businesses to navigate, Governor Larry Hogan today announced the launch of the Maryland Regional Resources team and webpage. Comprised of the 10 state agencies that make up the Governor’s Commerce Subcabinet as well as the Governor’s Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, the team meets regularly to assist businesses and local jurisdictions with economic development efforts, including issues related to transportation, workforce development, licensing, planning, and permitting, among others. The Maryland Regional Resources webpage, housed on the Maryland Business Express site, offer an easy-to-navigate state map with agency contacts for each region. 

“Our administration remains committed to ensuring Maryland is Open for Business and providing outstanding customer service to our citizens and businesses,” said Governor Hogan. “The Maryland Regional Resources team is yet another resource that businesses and local governments can tap when they need state assistance to resolve an issue quickly and efficiently.”

Making up the Governor’s Commerce Subcabinet is the Department of Assessments and Taxation, the Department of Commerce, the Department of the Environment, the Maryland Higher Education Commission, the Department of Housing and Community Development, the Department of Labor, the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Planning, including the Office of Smart Growth, the Governor’s Office of Small, Minority and Women Business Affairs, and the Department of Transportation

“Bringing together representatives from state agencies that frequently interact with the business community offers a “one-stop shop” so our businesses don’t have to contact multiple agencies for assistance,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Kelly M. Schulz. “Our goal with the Regional Resources team is to alleviate barriers to growth for our businesses and help them succeed in Maryland.”
