The Local Development Council is established under the authority of State law in those counties in which a video lottery terminal facility, or casino, is located. The Local Development Council’s sole purpose is to advise the County Executive on the needs and priorities of the communities surrounding the Maryland Live! Casino and the expenditure of video lottery terminal funds.
Anne Arundel County receives 4.51% of total revenues generated by video lottery terminals at Maryland Live! Casino. This funding is distributed by Anne Arundel County in the form of local impact grants and must be used for improvements primarily in the communities in immediate proximity to the casino.
Last year, the County and Maryland Live! awarded $18.5 million in local impact grants for fiscal 2018 to various grant recipients as recommended by the LDC, of which $370,000 went to community support grants.
