Maryland Business Resources

We have small and large firms in Maryland and many may be overwhelmed by where to look for financial assistance. Here are a few reliable resources we’ve received from MEMA:

Maryland has launched Relief Wizard. This is an easy-to-use tool that can direct businesses to the programs for which they are eligible.

Small Business Reserve (SBR) Program:
Certified small businesses have access to over $400 million in prime contracting opportunities on state-funded contracts through the Small Business Reserve (SBR) Program. SBR certifications can be completed through the eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA) platform by clicking emma.maryland.gov.

Once certified, firms must recertify annually. If a business is not in the program or needs to recertify, they should complete the SBR certification process immediately. Utilize this Quick Reference Guide for more information: procurement.maryland.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2020/03/7-SBRCertification_Recertification.pdf.
