Housing & Community Development
County Chartered Department
The Housing Authority and the Redevelopment Authority are quasi-governmental agencies, whereas the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) serves as the County chartered department responsible for the administration of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement programs, including Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) at the local level.

DHCD Busy with Groundbreakings and Ribbon Cuttings
Groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings abound as the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) celebrates three housing projects that will provide affordable housing to seniors, families and individuals.
On September 5th, the Woodlands at Reid Temple hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the start of construction for a 252 unit senior apartment building in Glenn Dale, MD. Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development provided $618,490 in HOME Funds as part of the financing for this project. The construction time frame is 24 months.
On September 11th, Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP) hosted a ribbon cutting for the renovation of Parkview Manor in Hyattsville, MD. Located at 5040 – 38th Avenue, each of the 53 apartment units were renovated to include: new kitchens with new energy saving appliances, new countertops, flooring and cabinets; new bathrooms, to include: new toilet, sink and bathtub, ceramic tile and new flooring.
As he addressed the stakeholders gathered for the ribbon cutting, Raymond Gilley, Deputy Chief Administration Officer for Economic Development for Prince George’s County commented, “This renovation project not only keeps quality, affordable housing in a well-established, middle income neighborhood, but also increases the supply of housing for the disabled by creating two accessible units that did not previously exist in this building.”
On Friday, September 27, Housing Initiative Partnership (HIP), a non-profit real estate developer of affordable housing, will break ground on the construction of Palmer Park Meadows, nine (9) high quality, three (3) bedroom, 2 ½ bath townhouses with off-street parking. The homes are designed to meet modern market rate standards with an open floor plan and flexible living spaces. The construction completion date for Palmer Park Meadows is estimated for June 2020. DHCD provided $1.7 million in HOME Funds to assist in the financing for this project.
