About Maryland.gov

Welcome to Maryland.gov - A gateway to information and services within and around the State of Maryland. Whether you are a citizen, business, or visitor, Maryland.gov has many features designed to help you to quickly and easily locate information and engage with government.  We invite you to experience Maryland through the beautiful photography and curated experiences with links to events and current news streams. The portal has been designed with a Mobile First approach using responsive design techniques to automatically scale the content to your browser, tablet or mobile device giving you access to government resources anywhere and anytime.

The prominently placed INSTANT SEARCH delivers targeted results for information, online services, maps and publications across the Maryland.gov enterprise of agencies. Information throughout the website is categorized by main topics:  RESIDENTS, BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT, EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, VISITORS and ONLINE SERVICES.  Each topic is further organized into relevant subcategories to make information easy to locate. A separate section for Online Services provides easy access to applications that allow citizens and businesses to transact business with Maryland state agencies.

On the home page feature area, the WHAT’S NEW tab highlights the top news stories in Maryland and time-relevant agency information and online services.  The NEAR YOU tab helps you to find government offices, MVA wait times, and state parks through geo-location services on your browser and mobile device.  Governor O’Malley’s Goals For Moving Maryland Forward are highlighted on the GOALS tab so you can monitor the progress of Maryland’s important strategic policy goals.

Maryland’s extensive social media channels are heavily integrated throughout Maryland.gov to help you engage with your government.  The CONNECT Tab on the home page summarizes the social media channels and links to a full SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTORY.  You can also find in-context Twitter and You Tube feeds within the main navigation menus and on inner pages of the main topics.

For easy reference on every page of the portal, the header and the footer contain links to important information and services.  You can access the 24/7 eGov Technical Support, the Maryland State Phone Directory, the Maryland State Agency Directory and the Online Services directly from the header of the portal.  In the footer, you can quickly locate the HELP links, the SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTORY and ALERTS.
