State grants to aid nonprofits promoting home ownership

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development has announced that it will award grants of up to $20,000 to eligible nonprofit organizations and local jurisdictions working to expand home ownership among low-income buyers.

Grants may be used to provide assistance, training and supervision in developing a self-help home ownership project and to provide information and education on cost savings. Eligible projects consist of six or more housing units close to one another that are built or rehabilitated using self-help methods.

The Community Development Administration, an agency of DHCD, is accepting applications through April 19. The grants will be announced at the end of June.
