Celebrating Hanukkah -
To all our Jewish friends and neighbors locally as well as those around the world, my family and I want to wish you a joyous and happy Hanukkah and pray for blessings for the Jewish people as they celebrate this season.
Project Restore Grants for Carroll County Announced Last Week
Last week, Governor Larry Hogan has announced 376 businesses across the state will be receiving awards to revitalize downtowns and main streets. Very happy to see that local Carroll County businesses are getting a boost thanks to Project Restore. This will be a positive for our Main Streets with Carroll County receiving $491,134 for 9 nine local businesses including: Carroll Adult Medical Daycare LLC, Collision Course LLC, Get FoodGo LLC, Kindred Treatment Center LLC, Mindful Living Counseling LLC, Power Brow Collective LLC, Revolution The Movement, S.K. Printing, Inc. and Storm Crow Games LLC.
This economic recovery initiative provides financial incentives for small businesses to revitalize vacant retail and commercial spaces. Project Restore was launched by the Governor last year and is administered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
Winter Resources for Carroll County Residents
With the impending cold weather moving in this week, I thought I’d share a list of resources in Carroll County, Carroll County Health Department (maryland.gov). This website includes information about how to heat your home correctly, warming centers, power outages, energy assistance, and emergencies.
As always, my team and I are available to you. My personal email is [email protected]. We will do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out.
