FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Projects promoting Civil War tourism and education are getting a boost from a Maryland grant program.

The Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area is holding the first of three workshops on the grant offer Thursday in Frederick.

Organizers say nonprofit organizations and government entities can receive grants of up to $50,000 for planning, interpretation and programming. They can get up to $100,000 for capital projects such as property acquisition, development, rehabilitation and restoration.

The grant offer is for the fiscal year beginning July 1 of this year.

The heritage area encompasses Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties.
