Interactive: Hollywood Casino Perryville’s December revenue

With Maryland’s first slots casino churning in Perryville, money has already begun flowing into the state.

Click on the slot machine lever below to reveal how much of December’s revenue from the Hollywood Casino Perryville will go to the seven designated agencies and accounts.

Each month, we will update the interactive with current figures provided by the Maryland Lottery.

Here’s more on those seven agencies and accounts getting slots revenue:

Maryland Education Trust Fund: The bulk of the revenue (48.5 percent to 51 percent) goes to K-12 public school construction and community college and higher education building projects.

Hollywood Casino Perryville: The slots operator gets up to 33 percent of the revenue.

Horseracing purse account: 7 percent of the revenue is used to boost the winnings paid to horse owners at Maryland tracks, and support breeders in the state.

Local impact grants: Local governments home to slots parlors get 5.5 percent of the revenue generated. Some of that money also goes to communities neighboring Pimlico in Baltimore City and Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George’s County.

Racetrack facility renewal account: This fund for track upgrades gets 2.5 percent of the revenue.

Maryland Lottery: The state agency gets 2 percent of the revenue to cover its slots-related administrative costs.

Small, minority- and women-owned businesses: This money is set aside for business investment in these kinds of firms, with 1.5 percent of the revenue going to this fund.

    Was wondering how one can apply for grant funds for our “Sew and Reap Community Quilt Project”. Located at 68 Heather lane. Perryville, MD Store #39.
    We are a non profit group, making quilts for Cancer patients at Union Hospital, Christiana Hospital. Veterans at the Perryville VA. Elkton pregnancy center. We donate quilts to other charites for their fundraising. We also make pillowcases for Wilmington Hospital for their rehab unit. We refer to this project as “Case’s for a Cause”. We have recently partnered with Soldiers Angels for the Wounded Warrior Project. Our quilts a shipped to Germany for our wounded soldiers. We are looking for funding to help by our batting and threads. Any information would be appreciated about applying for a grant or sponsor. Thank you for your time.
    Sew and Reap,

    Sandy
