What we are doing

MD Benefits Center


In 2012, BDT partnered with the Maryland Department of Human Resources and the AARP Foundation to identify and enroll eligible, older Marylanders in the Food Supplement Program (FSP). In 2013, BDT partnered with Share Our Strength to expand outreach to eligible Marylanders with minor dependents.

The Maryland Benefits Center will expand its services beginning July, 2014 to screen seniors for additional benefits, including the Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP), Medicare Savings Program, Low-Income Subsidy, and Medicaid.
