Community Development Resources
HASMC’s Community Development program performs public outreach, program marketing, and agency partnering to improve the socio-economic status of the residents of St. Mary’s County. HASMC utilizes both State and Federal resources to support this program. Information on some of those resources can be found below:
- Community Legacy/Strategic Demolition etc.: Provides local governments and community development organizations with funding for essential projects aimed at strengthening communities through activities such as business retention and attraction, encouraging homeownership and commercial revitalization.
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG): Provides grants to units of local government to carry out housing, public facility and economic development activities which predominantly benefit low and moderate-income persons. The funds are restricted to the non-entitlement areas of the State, which include the rural counties and towns.
- Maryland Affordable Housing Trust (MAHT): MAHT promotes affordable housing for households earning less than 50% of area or State-wide median income.
- Multifamily Energy Efficiency and Housing Affordability Program – EmPOWER (MEEHA-EmPOWER): Provides funding for energy efficiency measures in multifamily homes of low and moderate income households.
- Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA): a voluntary professional individual membership organization. Although it is voluntary to join, consistently over two-thirds of Maryland’s lawyers (approximately 25,000) and judges do so to be a part of the professional organization.
