Lacking a foundation of business contacts, Gilford landed many of his early contracts through the federal and state set-aside programs inspired by former Maryland congressman and civil rights leader Parren J. Mitchell. And that assistance helped build Gilford's Beltsville-based company into one of the region's largest black-owned contracting firms.
