Housing and Community Development june 2017
Housing & Community Development works to provide affordable housing opportunities for low to moderate income residents of Harford County. We administer a range of Federal, State, and County funded programs providing opportunities for affordable home ownership, loans and grants for special needs housing programs, rental assistance, renter protection through Livability Code enforcement, first-time homebuyers, housing preservation, foreclosure prevention, economic mobility, family self-sufficiency, and financial literacy.   

Mission Statement

To build and grow strong communities by empowering every person and every organization in the County to achieve more.

Harford County Housing is conducting a survey along with several other public housing authorities and local jurisdictions in the Baltimore area, working with the Baltimore Metropolitan Council and Root Policy Research, a community consulting firm in Denver. The survey is completely confidential.
