The purpose of the Maryland Horse Board Grants Program is to develop the Maryland Horse Industry by supporting research, education and promotional activities.

Toward that end, the MHIB each year accepts grant applications for research, educational and promotional projects that support horses or the equestrian community, or develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry.  

Funding for these grants and for MHIB is provided by the Maryland Feed Fund, which collects $6 on every ton of horse feed sold in Maryland.   

Projects of interest to the Board include those that develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry. 

Projects will be evaluated for their value to the industry, degree of industry promotion, size and scope of activity, financial need, potential for matching funds, benefits and quality of the written presentation. Grant requests should not exceed $3,000. The average grant amount is approximately $1,200. In FY 2015,28 projects received $30,000 in grant allocations.
