DHCD Releases Draft of the Comprehensive Housing Strategy

 ​Largo, MD --- .

​Last summer, Prince George’s County kicked off its planning process to develop a Comprehensive Housing Strategy (CHS). This strategy is designed to create a roadmap to guide the County’s and its partners’ housing investments over the next 10 years. The strategy will help build sustainable, diverse, and inclusive communities connected to economic opportunity as the County continues to grow and evolve.

​Over the last 18 months, DHCD, as the lead County agency for this effort, and its consultants, Enterprise Community Partners, conducted housing need surveys, focus group interviews, public meetings, assessed housing programs and policies and conducted a housing needs and market analysis as the foundation for the CHS. A CHS Advisory Group was established and bi-monthly meetings were held that provided insight and guidance into the process. The draft of the Comprehensive Housing Strategy can be found on the Comprehensive Housing Strategy website. 

​ Please feel free to review the document. DHCD welcomes your comments and feedback. DHCD will be accepting comments and feedback until Friday, November 9, 2018. After that date, the agency will put the document into its final form. ​
