The Maryland Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a federally funded program designed to assist governments with activities directed toward neighborhood and house revitalization, economic development, and improved community facilities and services.  It is administered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development.

Efforts will be made to accommodate the disabled and non-English speaking residents with five days advance notice to Tina Miles at (410) 758-4406.

To comply with the Governor’s proclamation declaring a state of emergency in Maryland, to minimize the person-to-person spread of COVID-19, we ask that citizens stay home and watch the County Commissioner’s meeting live on our QAC Website at www://qac.org/live or on QACTV’s Television channel on Atlantic Broadband cable (channel 7 or 77).
