Baltimore County Announces Federal Fiscal Year 2019 and County Fiscal Year 2020 Grant Applications

Baltimore County is now accepting applications for three Request for Proposals: Public Services, Homeless Services and Capital Projects. 

A public hearing to solicit public views on priority needs for County Fiscal Year 2020 associated with these application areas will be held on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. in the Community Center at Epiphany Episcopal Church, 2216 Pot Spring Road, Timonium, Maryland 21093. After the public hearing, a pre-proposal review session will occur to review the three applications. 

Applications are due by 2 p.m., Tuesday, January 29, 2019. All funded projects are to be consistent with the priorities identified within the County's Consolidated Plan, Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2016 to 2019 (PDF). The Consolidated plan was previously submitted in accordance with federal requirements for jurisdictions receiving funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for housing and community development programs.

Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report Federal Fiscal Year 2017 and County Fiscal Year 2018

Baltimore County's Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) FFY 2017 and County Fiscal Year (CFY) 2018 (PDF) describes how the County used federal Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Act and Emergency Solutions Grant funds awarded to the County by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for use during Fiscal Year 2018. The report explains how these funds leveraged other federal, state and county funds for the benefit of Baltimore County citizens.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

The Department of Planning administers annual entitlement grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which constitutes the majority of the agency's funding. The Department of Planning receives funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships Program and from the Emergency Solutions Grant from HUD.

Funds currently received under this program are tied to the County's Consolidated Plan FY 2016 through 2019 (PDF). This plan outlines a multiyear strategy that proposes how the County will use these funds to create decent housing, expand economic opportunity and ensure a suitable living environment for low- to moderate-income persons and communities.

The Annual Action Plan highlights the efforts that will be taken in each Fiscal Year to meet the goals of the Consolidated Plan. These updates are completed for each fiscal year and describe the progress of initiatives and projects outlined in the Plan. They also explain changes in policies and direction by the County based on the past year's experience and describe additional projects that were undertaken during that year. A part of these updates is a List of Proposed Activities to be Undertaken beginning July 1 of each fiscal year. These documents are mandated by HUD and are reviewed and approved each year. Evaluations by HUD are made each year for compliance of activities outlined in these plans.

In keeping with its federal guidelines, Baltimore County also invites citizens to read its Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) each year. The CAPER describes how the County used Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Act and Emergency Solutions Grant funds awarded to the County by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for use in a particular fiscal year. The report explains how these federal funds leveraged other federal, state and county funds for the benefit of Baltimore County citizens.

State of Maryland

The Department of Planning also administers funding from the State of Maryland that supports those citizens at risk of living in a homeless shelter, citizens living in homeless shelters, and citizens moving out of a shelter.

Baltimore County

The Department of Planning uses County General funds from the Baltimore County Operating budget to leverage all of the federal and state funding received.

Use of Funding

Most of the funding listed above is allocated to benefit low and moderate income households and individuals through various activities carried out by public agencies and non-profit organizations.
