County awarded housing grants of $3.3 million

December 31, 1998

Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens announced yesterday that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded the county $3.3 million in grants to help provide housing for lower-income residents.

Owens said she is delighted that housing Secretary Andrew M. Cuomo increased the county's funding this year.

Arundel Community Development Services Inc., a nonprofit organization that receives funding through the county government, will administer the grants.

Slightly more than $2.4 million will go to the county's Community Development Block Grant Program, which is designed to provide jobs and housing for county residents with low to moderate incomes.
