Ethnic Commissions

The Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives oversees eight ethnic and cultural commissions, established to connect those ethnic communities to state resources, and to effectively address their social, business, education, and health needs. Each commission forms sub-committees to tackle those areas. 115 commissioners represent over 2.5 million Marylanders.
