Md. groups receive grants to promote homeownership

Twenty Maryland agencies received a total of $292,207 as part of a wider initiative by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to promote homeownership across the country.

HUD awarded $17.5 million in housing counseling assistance grants to 11 national and regional intermediary agencies and 358 local and state housing counseling agencies.

Grantees in Maryland ranged from the Maryland Rural Development Corp. to the Druid Heights Community Development Corp. in Baltimore.

The annual grants are awarded through a competitive process. Organizations that apply must be HUD-approved and are subject to performance reviews.
