Hollywood Casino revenue program announced

May 27, 2011|By Bryna Zumer | Record staff

Cecil County is taking applications from non-profits and municipalities who would like a chance at getting part of the county's share of revenues from Hollywood Casino Perryville.

The applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on June 17. Non-profits and municipalities will be judged on a point system to determine their eligibility.

They must be within the immediate proximity of the casino or, if farther away, must demonstrate that their clients are within the immediate proximity. They must also be in good standing with Cecil County and the Maryland.

The funds are being made available through the Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) Local Community Impact Grant Program.

Vicky Rinkerman, executive office administrator for the county commissioners' office, said she could not say who applied for the program until June 17, when the list would be made available.

She was optimistic about the program.

"I have gotten a lot of phone calls of interest," she said. "I expect to have a pretty good amount [of applicants]."

The application is available online at http://www.ccgov.org or at the county administrative building, at 200 Chesapeake Blvd., in Elkton.
