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 (PDF) is a U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development federally mandated plan that 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 the 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.
