Maryland Access Point

Maryland Access Point provides a single point of entry for consumers seeking services within a county or city. As the name implies, this is a single point through which consumers in the state are able to access the care they need. A single point of entry generally provides one place for information and referral, one place to find out about services and one place to apply for services. Currently in Maryland only a few counties have established this service.

The counties with Maryland Access Point and their links are listed below. To find services in other counties you can go to the county government web site, also listed at the bottom of this screen.
