LEGAL NOTICE: Updating Maryland’s Five Year Consolidated Plan

LEGAL NOTICE

Updating Maryland’s Five Year Consolidated Plan

Under the guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), notice is hereby given that the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) will hold a series of public hearings as it develops its new Five Year Consolidated Plan.

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year planning document required by HUD that sets out overall Statewide goals and priorities for housing, community development, and economic development activities. Special emphasis is given under the Plan to provide assistance for extremely low-, low, and moderate-income persons.

The Consolidated Plan also makes it possible for DHCD, public housing authorities, local governments, nonprofit organizations, community action agencies and others to apply for funding under HUD’s competitive grant programs. Local public housing authority Plans must be consistent with the State’s Consolidated Plan, and USDA Farmer’s Home housing programs and Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits are also coordinated with the Plan.   Lastly, while not directly covered by the Consolidated Plan, HUD funding allocations for the Section 8 Certificate and Voucher programs may be made in a way that enables jurisdictions to carry out their Consolidated Plan.

In addition to being a planning document, the Consolidated Plan also serves as the State’s application to HUD for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), Housing Opportunity With AIDS (HOPWA) and National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) funds. At this time, it is unknown how much DHCD expects to receive in CDBG funds, HOME funds, ESG funds HOPWA funds for the State’s Rural Program; HOPWA funds on behalf of Montgomery and Frederick Counties or HTF funds.  These funds are used primarily in the State’s rural areas, as many communities, including Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s Counties, as well as the Cities of Annapolis, Baltimore, Bowie, Cumberland, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Hagerstown and Salisbury prepare their own Consolidated Plans and receive their own funding directly from HUD.

In developing its previous Consolidated Plan, the State determined it would focus its resources on four main priorities Revitalizing Communities, Expanding the Supply of Decent Affordable Housing, Providing Homeownership Opportunities and Reducing Homelessness. It is to this purpose that we are holding public hearings; staff from the above-mentioned programs will be present to hear your thoughts – to develop new goals, change, retain and/or modify the State’s previous goals, or develop other policies and procedures affecting housing and community development activities. The State will also be updating its Analysis of Impediments (AI) as part of the Consolidated Plan process.

At this point, nothing has been written for the draft Consolidated Plan. These hearings are to gather initial input from the public about what should be in the new Five-Year Plan.  DHCD will then write a draft Plan, which will be released for 30 days of public comment (including written comment) at the beginning of April.  After the public has had several weeks to review the draft Consolidated Plan, a second set of hearings will be held in April.  Additional comments and suggestions will be received at this time, with the final version of the Plan submitted to HUD on or around May 15, 2020.

The first set of hearings on the development of the new Consolidated Plan will be held at the following dates, times, and places:

Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at 7:00 PM
Towson Library
320 York Road
Wilson Room

Hogan Administration Announces $3 Million to Revitalize Baltimore’s Historic Lexington Market

Hogan Administration Announces $3 Million to Revitalize Baltimore’s Historic Lexington Market
Neighborhood BusinessWorks loan will support three months of construction

NEW CARROLLTON, Md. (January 7, 2020) – Governor Larry Hogan today announced a $3 million bridge loan through the Department of Housing and Community Development’s Neighborhood BusinessWorks program for the revitalization of Baltimore’s historic Lexington Market. The loan will support three months of construction work for the estimated $38.5 million redevelopment project. The Neighborhood BusinessWorks bridge loan will also enable the Lexington Market project to meet certain financing requirements to secure additional New Market Tax Credit resources.

“We are proud to support the revitalization of the historic Lexington Market, which will create hundreds of jobs and support the long-term wellbeing of the surrounding community,” said Governor Hogan. “This transformative project draws upon the market’s rich legacy and points to a bright future for downtown Baltimore.”

Founded in 1782 and described by many as the longest operating public market in the country, Lexington Market was the locus of community, culinary, and social life in Baltimore. However, since the 1960s, the area surrounding the market began to deteriorate with the neighboring communities experiencing significant economic disinvestment. The redevelopment plan will rehabilitate the existing East Market building, reopening Lexington Street for pedestrians, and constructing the South Market building as a modern interpretation of the original 1900s-era market sheds.

“Redevelopment projects of this scale require a great deal of planning and a lot of different sources of financing, and we are proud to be a partner in the revitalization of Lexington Market,” said Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “This redevelopment will breathe new life into this historic landmark, re-establishing it as a vital thread in the fabric of Baltimore while creating jobs and enriching the quality of life for city residents.”

The first phase of the Lexington Market project will create 250 construction jobs. The new South Market will add approximately 40 new merchants, creating 200 jobs, including both full- and part-time positions that will be available to community residents. The new Lexington Market will focus on a healthy mix of both staple foods like produce, meats, and dairy, as well as prepared foods. A wide range of pricing will be available, and SNAP and FSP benefits will be accepted as forms of payment to embrace the low-income community that has relied on Lexington Market for their shopping needs for generations.

The Neighborhood BusinessWorks program provides gap financing to new and expanding small businesses located in Priority Funding Areas and Opportunity Zones across the state. During Governor Hogan’s administration, Neighborhood BusinessWorks has provided more than $40 million to over 170 small businesses or projects that support small businesses. Neighborhood BusinessWorks was also instrumental in aiding small business recovery following the civil unrest in Baltimore in 2015 flooding in historic Ellicott City in 2016 and 2018. Other recent program loans have assisted biotechnology companies, restaurants, and retail establishments. For more information about the program, visit: https://dhcd.maryland.gov/business/.

New Video Series Premieres Highlighting Neighborhood BusinessWorks Investment

New Video Series Premieres Highlighting Neighborhood BusinessWorks Investment
Program has provided more than $40 million to small businesses during Hogan administration

NEW CARROLlTON, MD (December 19, 2019) – The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development launched a new promotional video series highlighting projects supported by the Neighborhood BusinessWorks program. The new videos present testimonials from business owners and developers who received funding about their positive experiences with the program. Neighborhood BusinessWorks  provides gap financing to small businesses located in Priority Funding Areas and Opportunity Zones across Maryland.

“Small businesses create jobs and contribute significantly to Maryland’s positive economic growth. That’s why one of Governor Larry Hogan’s top priorities is establishing and fostering a business-friendly climate in our great state,” said Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “Since 2015, Neighborhood BusinessWorks has roughly tripled the amount of small businesses it assists on a yearly basis, and we hope these new videos educate and encourage new and expanding businesses to explore the program’s flexible and proven financing.”

Recently, Governor Hogan announced that Neighborhood BusinessWorks surpassed the milestone of more than $40 million in lending to over 170 small businesses since January 2015. The program was instrumental in aiding small business recovery following the 2016 and 2018 historic flooding in Ellicott City. Other recent loans have assisted biotechnology companies, restaurants, and retail establishments. The first videos in the new promotional series highlight two Baltimore businesses: the Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School and Union Collective.

Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter Schoolhttps://youtu.be/rTG8EKGibzg

Opened in 2015, the Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School is an all-girls, public charter, middle school in Baltimore. The school was created through a unique public-private partnership between Roland Park Country School and the Baltimore City school system. Named after the African American activist, civil rights leader, and  director of the Maryland National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School offers a supportive 21st century learning environment providing rigorous academic course work, character development, and leadership opportunities. Neighborhood BusinessWorks gap financing supported acquisition and construction of the school building. 

Union Collectivehttps://youtu.be/T3AhAvJSO0A and https://youtu.be/gDV_Rjh6tKc

After five years powered by a great product and passionate customers, Union Craft Brewing had outgrown their facility in Baltimore’s Woodberry neighborhood. Less than a mile away, Union found their ideal location, a gigantic warehouse near both public transportation and the interstate. After securing financing through the Neighborhood BusinessWorks program, they partnered with six like-minded businesses to transform the repurposed warehouse and create Union Collective, a modern day maker center. Anchored by Union’s production brewery and taproom, Union Collective and its local businesses are reinvigorating manufacturing in Baltimore with a thoughtful, civic-minded approach that supports the local community.

Governor Hogan Announces Homelessness Prevention Awards for Carroll, Cecil, and Charles Counties

Governor Hogan Announces Homelessness Prevention Awards for Carroll, Cecil, and Charles Counties
$1.4 Million Awarded For Three Counties

ANNAPOLIS, MD (December 16, 2019) — Governor Larry Hogan today announced $1.4 million to assist Maryland’s homelessness prevention efforts through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG).

“We have made significant progress to reduce homelessness in Maryland by enhancing the way we administer essential resources to those in need, and by partnering with dedicated programs and organizations across our state,” said Governor Hogan. “Our administration will continue working hard to ensure the safety and security of our most vulnerable citizens.”

The department is awarding grants to nonprofits in three different counties to support their fight against homelessness, including:

“Thanks to Governor Hogan’s commitment, we have seen a historic reduction in homelessness throughout our state,” said Maryland Housing Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “These awards will help counties sustain this momentum as winter approaches and there is greater need for resources.”

Earlier this year, Governor Hogan announced that overall homelessness has been reduced by more than 9% since 2017, according to data from the 2019 Point-in-Time Count. The number of chronically homeless individuals dropped by nearly 15% and veterans experiencing homelessness declined by nearly 9%. Conducted by the state’s 16 designated Continuums of Care and supported by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, the Point-in-time Count is a count and survey of homeless persons on a single night in January by local homelessness service providers.

In Fiscal Year 2020, the state’s housing department allocated nearly $7.8 million in CDBG funding by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In addition to the homelessness awards, CDBG funding is being used for previously announced community development and infrastructure projects and special projects across the state.

Fiscal Year 2020 Maryland Housing Counseling Fund Awards Announced

Fiscal Year 2020 Maryland Housing Counseling Fund Awards Announced
More than $2 million awarded to 40 organizations in 16 jurisdictions

NEW CARROLLTON, MD (December 3, 2019) – The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development announced more than $2 million in Fiscal Year 2020 awards through the Maryland Housing Counseling Fund. These awards will support 40 nonprofit and local government organizations that provide housing counseling services including homebuyer education, pre-purchase counseling and financial capability coaching; as well as, counseling and legal assistance to avoid foreclosure. Funds may also be used by these organizations to increase operational capacity to serve more clients.

“A family’s home is their most important asset, and housing counseling helps ensure that potential and current homeowners are educated and empowered to make informed decisions about purchasing or preserving that home,” said Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Kenneth C. Holt. “We will continue to support the members of our statewide housing counseling network and other partners who work tirelessly to increase financial literacy and provide thoughtful and responsive foreclosure mitigation services.”

The department awarded nearly $1.5 million to 33 organizations that are members of the State of Maryland’s network of housing counseling agencies. The majority of these organizations are also approved and certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and they provide critical counseling services to assist new homebuyers and homeowners facing foreclosure. These services often include educating clients on the home buying process and working with them to improve their credit and reduce their debt. Counselors also assist clients facing foreclosure by advocating on their behalf with mortgage servicers to achieve a positive outcome.

Six legal service providers received $460,000 in support to assist homeowners in underserved rural areas of the state, as well as Baltimore City and Prince George’s County which continue to experience high foreclosure activity. These funds include a $200,000 award to Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, one of the largest providers of pro bono civil legal services to low-income Marylanders. This award will enable the organization to continue its successful “My Home, My Deed, My Legacy” public awareness campaign to educate Maryland residents – especially low-income residents of Baltimore City – about the importance of estate planning and the critical need to confirm their name is on the deed to their property to ensure legal ownership and the ability to pass their home on to other family members.

The Community Development Network of Maryland received $64,000 to support the organization’s ongoing activities to increase the capacity of the network of housing counseling agencies, strengthen partnership and collaboration between members, and raise awareness of the free services available to Maryland homeowners. The department also awarded $10,000 to support the BlueHub SUN program, a national nonprofit foreclosure prevention program, which has helped over 1,000 families avoid foreclosure since 2009 by purchasing foreclosed properties before residents are evicted and then reselling these homes to the homeowner with a mortgage they can afford.

HELP Veterans Village Receives National Award

HELP Veterans Village was recently named the Special Needs Housing Project of the Year by Affordable Housing Finance Magazine. Developed through a partnership between the VA Maryland Health Care System, the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, HELP USA, Cecil County, and the Town of Perryville, HELP Veterans Village provides housing for at-risk and formerly homeless veterans in the village area of the Perry Point VA Medical Center. The department provided nearly $19 million in financing for this vital project that has contributed to the reduction of veterans homelessness in Maryland.

New unit at HELP Veterans Village

Housing for homeless veterans at HELP Veterans Village near the Perry Point VA Medical Center.

Located just outside of the Town of Perryville in Cecil County, HELP Veterans Village features 75 newly renovated and newly constructed homes located in the village area of the Perry Point Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. The Village was awarded 75 Project Based VA Supportive Housing Vouchers from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Veterans Affairs, which are administered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. These vouchers provide subsidized rent for all the homes in the Village to support at-risk and formerly homeless veterans and their family members. These veterans and their families receive safe, stable, energy-efficient housing located near the full range of VA support programs and services provided by the medical center, as well as convenient access to local transportation resources. The Village also achieves net zero-energy consumption thanks to a 4-acre, 420-kW solar-array field that feeds back into the power grid.

The selection of HELP Veterans Village for this award highlights Maryland’s ongoing efforts to support local veterans. Earlier this year, Governor Larry Hogan proclaimed 2019 as the Year of the Veteran in Maryland to recognize the state’s 380,000 veterans for their service and raise awareness of the unique challenges they still bravely face, including homelessness. HELP Veterans Village has contributed to the reduction of veterans homelessness in the state. Based on data from the 2019 Point-in-Time Count, the number of veterans experiencing homelessness declined by 8.58% compared to 2017 data. Conducted by the state’s 16 designated Continuums of Care and supported by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, the Point-in-Time Count is a count and survey of homeless persons on a single night in January by local homelessness service providers that serves as a snapshot of the scope and scale of homelessness in Maryland’s communities.

Department financing for HELP Veterans Village was provided through a variety of resources, including short-term and long-term bonds, 4% Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, a Rental Housing Works loan, and energy efficiency funds. The department’s Community Legacy program also provided funding to the Town of Perryville to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant system to support the creation of the Village. Additional financing for the development came from philanthropic support from the Home Depot Foundation, the Citi Foundation and Northrop Grumman. The Village’s sponsor is HELP Development Corporation, the development arm of HELP USA, a national homeless service and low-income housing nonprofit.

Governor Hogan Awards More Than $30 Million in Neighborhood Revitalization Funds
Five Programs Provide Support for 181 Projects in 23 Jurisdictions

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced more than $30 million in Fiscal Year 2020 neighborhood revitalization program awards. Grants from the Community Legacy program, the Strategic Demolition Fund, the Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative, the National Capital Strategic Economic Development Fund, and the Seed Community Development Anchor Institution Fund will support 181 projects in 23 jurisdictions across Maryland and are anticipated to leverage more than $600 million in private and nonprofit sector funds.

All five revitalization programs are managed by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development and support business expansion and retention; streetscape improvements; homeownership and home rehabilitation incentives; commercial improvement programs; mixed-use development, and strategic demolition.

“These awards are about creating economic growth, new jobs, and improving communities for all Marylanders,” said Governor Hogan. “Our administration is proud to support such a diverse slate of important projects that will truly change Maryland for the better.”

Considered one of the state’s most flexible revitalization programs, Community Legacy awarded $6 million to 58 projects in designated Sustainable Communities throughout Maryland. Among others, these include rehabilitation of historic buildings in Frederick County, development of a co-working space in Harford County, and a park overlook in Somerset County.

The Strategic Demolition Fund awarded $5.5 million to 21 projects, including a mixed-use redevelopment in an Opportunity Zone next to Frostburg State University in Allegany County, infrastructure improvements at the Chestertown Business Campus in Kent County, and a community center in Wicomico County.

“Each of these projects makes a huge impact in their communities,” said Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “With diligent allocation of our neighborhood revitalization resources in response to unique local needs, we are strengthening neighborhoods across the state.”

The Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative and the National Capital Strategic Economic Development Fund, programs designed to support redevelopment in communities within the Baltimore and Capital Beltways, awarded $12.575 million to 80 projects and $4 million to 18 projects, respectively. Projects include property rehabilitation in Anne Arundel County, homeownership incentives in Baltimore City neighborhoods, a community family life center in Baltimore County, and facade improvements in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.

The Seed Community Development Anchor Institution Fund provides grants and loans to anchor institutions for community development projects in blighted areas of the state. To be eligible for a grant or loan, an institute of higher education or a hospital must provide evidence of matching funds from a private source. The Seed fund awarded $2.5 million to four projects including the Sinai Hospital Center of Hope, a new facility that will house multiple partner agencies responsible for a variety of violence prevention and intervention programs, and a pedestrian/bike trail at MedStar Harbor Hospital in Baltimore City.

Governor Hogan Announces $40 Million in Support to New and Expanding Small Businesses

Governor Hogan Announces $40 Million in Support to New and Expanding Small Businesses

Neighborhood BusinessWorks Lending Program Hits Milestone With Loan to Ministry of Brewing in Baltimore City

For immediate release: 

October 30, 2019

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the State of Maryland has surpassed the milestone of more than $40 million in lending to over 170 small businesses through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Neighborhood BusinessWorks program since January 2015. Neighborhood BusinessWorks provides gap financing to new and expanding small businesses located in Priority Funding Areas and Opportunity Zones across the state.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and helping small business owners succeed is a priority,” said Governor Hogan. “Through Neighborhood BusinessWorks, we are able to help great ideas become actual, brick-and-mortar businesses that contribute to the economic development of Maryland’s great cities and towns.”

The program achieved the milestone this summer through a loan to Ministry of Brewing. The project involves converting a desanctified former church in Southeast Baltimore into a 15,000-square-foot brewpub. The brewery is expected to open later this year.

Neighborhood BusinessWorks was also instrumental in aiding small business recovery following the 2016 and 2018 historic flooding in Ellicott City. Other recent loans have assisted biotechnology companies, restaurants, and retail establishments.

“We have been aggressively growing the Neighborhood BusinessWorks program over the last few years,” said Housing Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “Prior to 2015, the department was helping on average just about a dozen businesses a year; we have nearly tripled that and will continue to work to help small businesses and create more jobs.”
