BALTIMORE COUNTY - Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) has distributed more than $214,000 in grants among 41 non-profit organizations to assist with environment-centric projects in their service area as part of its annual Green Grants program.

According to BGE, the program has extended over $2.2 million to support community-driven ecological initiatives since its founding.

Grants awarded to the non-profits range from $2,500 to $10,000 and must be used for projects that align with BGE’s environmental priorities, namely conservation, education, energy efficiency, pollution prevention, and community engagement.

Only 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations with a governing board that meet specific criteria qualify for the grants.
