The State of Maryland has granted TMC $698,000 for the purchase of easements under the Rural Legacy Program in 2014. These purchases are often used to preserve land that adjoins other preserved properties and does not qualify for other programs.
Our Rural Legacy area includes land in Harford and Baltimore Counties. TMC co-holds these easements with the Department of Natural Resources and is responsible for their administration in perpetuity.
Applications for RL grants are submitted annually.
