Thirty-one area municipalities and non-profit groups will share a million dollars in grant awards generated from gaming at Rocky Gap Casino Resort. The county receives 5.5 per cent of revenue generate each year from electronic slot machines; Maryland law says that one-fifth of that revenue must be spent on capital requests from Allegany County municipalities and non-profits. Grant awards range from $1200 to just over $100,000, and some of the recipients include Allegany College, the Allegany County Animal Shelter, the towns of Barton and Midland, the Western Maryland Food Bank and the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad.
