Community Development

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.  

Harford County’s 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 FY2019 (FFY2018) Annual Action Plan was approved by HUD on August 7, 2018.

2019 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) Survey

 

What is the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)?

A data-and community-driven approach to assessing segregation and expanding opportunity, among other fair housing issues. It is designed to aid local leaders and community stakeholders in developing fair housing priorities and goals that will ultimately increase fair housing choice, build opportunity for all residents, and strengthen communities. The purpose of the AI is to set up a framework for taking meaningful actions, to affirmatively further fair housing. 

The new AI will replace the 2012 AI that jurisdictions and PHAs have been implementing over the past several years.  The regional collaboration anticipates releasing a draft AI for comment in April 2019 and finalizing the AI in October 2019.
