On Monday, December 13th, the Rural Maryland Council (RMC) will present a $300,000 grant to the partnership of the Military Alliance Council (MAC), the Town of Indian Head, and the United State Bomb Technicians Association (USBTA) to assist the USBTA in the renovation of the former A&P/CVS building at 4450 Indian Head Highway. Upon completion of the renovation, the USBTA will relocate their corporate headquarters from Colorado to their new facility in Charles County, the USBTA Bomb Disposal Technology and Training Center at Indian Head’s new Maryland Technology Center.
The presentation will take place at the USBTA’s facility and those in attendance will include state, regional, and local representatives as well as local business leaders to recognize this innovative partnership.
The RMC brings together citizens, community-based organizations, federal, state, county, and municipal government officials as well as representatives of the for-profit and nonprofit sectors to collectively address the needs of Rural Maryland communities. Their goals are to encourage healthy, connected communities throughout Rural Maryland; support the development and growth of vibrant economies in Rural Maryland; foster stewardship of Maryland’s natural resources; and maximize RMC outreach, resources, and mission through financial and organizational development.
The grant being awarded to the partnership is the Rural Maryland Prosperity Investment Fund (RMPIF) with the objective of helping to raise the overall standard of living in rural areas while preserving the best aspects of a pastoral heritage and rural way of life. Contact Charlotte Davis, RMC Executive Director, if you have any questions at 410-841-5774.
