The city of Frederick has received more than $400,000 in grant money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The $419,485 for Frederick is through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, which is used to expand affordable housing and economic development opportunities in low- to moderate-income communities.
Maryland communities received almost $52.5 million through the program for fiscal year 2021.
“As our partners across Maryland work to provide affordable housing and care to vulnerable citizens, this full-year funding will bolster their efforts and help them continue meeting the unique needs of their communities, especially in the COVID-19 environment,” Jane Miller, deputy regional administrator of HUD’s Mid-Atlantic region, said in a prepared statement.
