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) describes how Harford 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.
