State Agency Loan Program
the most recent session of the Maryland General Assembly, House
Bill 170 (Chapter 135 of the Acts of the General Assembly of 2019) was
passed which will expand the list of eligible borrowers for the Jane E. Lawton
Conservation Loan program to include state agencies, as well as enable energy
improvements of structures used primarily for religious or fraternal activities
to be potentially eligible to participate. This legislation took effect on June 1, 2019.
Starting in fiscal year 2020, state agencies will be able to apply for energy efficiency loans through the expanded Lawton program, as will all other eligible Lawton borrowers. All borrowers, including State agencies, are requested to use the Lawton Loan Program application form. That form, plus more information on the expanded Jane E. Lawton Conservation Loan program, is found on the Jane E. Lawton Conservation Loan Program webpage.
