Important Update on Maryland’s COVID-19 grant and loan process: applicants need to create an account in the Maryland One Stop portal. Applicants should create a One Stop account even if they have already submitted a loan or grant application. They will not lose their place in the queue. For new applicants, the “Apply” link sends them to Maryland One Stop and directs them to create an account and/or login in order to begin an application.
