Housing & Community Development

Government Agencies
The Department of Housing and Community Development is comprised of three governmental agencies:

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.

The ARC of  Prince George's County renovates homes for developmental disabled County residents with CDBG Funds

Prince George's County is a great place to live and the ARC of Prince George's County ensures that people with developmental and intellectual disabilities have a place to call home.  The ARC's residential services provide not only a place to live, but also the best quality of life for its clients through medical support, behavioral support and community inclusion.  The ARC also works diligently to support residents' families through support groups, on-going communications and involvement.

​Operating over 46 residences within the County, the ARC's dedication to meeting the needs of its clients on an individual level shines through each house.  Residents are given the degree of support they need, whether daytime staff, live-in staff or 24-hour a day nursing staff.  Between three to six people live together-building life long friendships and creating a cohesive community.

​Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding was used to remodel kitchens, renovate bathrooms and replace roofs and wheelchair ramps.
