Community Development aids in finding resources available to allow public service needs, neighborhood revitalization, capital projects, and human service needs to be addressed in our county.
Our consolidated plan is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development and serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from the Community Planning and Development formula block grant programs such as: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program. The plan provides a concise summary of the actions, activities, and specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used by the county to benefit low- and moderate-income residents of Harford County, as well as the Town of Bel Air, the City of Aberdeen, and the City of Havre de Grace.
The Harford County Annual Action Plan describes how the county will use federal, state, and local funds to address the housing and community development needs of the low- to moderate-income in our community during each fiscal year. Harford County’s FY2021 (FFY2020) Annual Action Plan was approved by HUD on September 15, 2020 and can be found in the last section of the FY21-25 Consolidated Plan.
