ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has outlined $190 million in federal COVID-19 relief for small businesses, higher education and nonprofit organizations.

Hogan announced Tuesday that $45 million will be allocated to expand a program to help small businesses. It awards grants of up to $10,000 to businesses of 50 or fewer employees. The Hogan administration says the program already has provided more than $40 million to 4,073 applicants. Another $50 million will create the Maryland Nonprofit Recovery Initiative to help organizations address revenue reductions and expenses.

Up to $90 million will be used to reimburse state-supported universities for expenses related to COVID-19.
