Each fall, on behalf of Anne Arundel County, ACDS begins the housing and community development budget process for the fiscal year that begins July 1st of the following year. ACDS welcomes broad public participation in the process and encourages comments and input from residents and service providers on the County’s current housing and community development needs, as well as recommendations for activities and projects which best address those needs.
First Public Hearing of FY 2024 Budget Process
ACDS will hold the first public hearing of the FY 2024 budget process on October 27, 2022. The hearing will provide attendees with a report on recent accomplishments as well as information on the amount of federal housing and community development funds expected to be available for Local Fiscal Year 2024 (July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024) and the range of activities that may be undertaken with those funds. Residents and stakeholders will be invited to speak on the issues and needs they see in their communities, as well as recommend strategies, activities and projects for the use of available federal funds. Please RSVP to Ms. Tracey Mullery at email@example.com.
If you wish to attend and require a special accommodation (e.g. interpreter for deaf and hard of hearing or critical documents translated for persons with limited English proficiency) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org no later than seven business days prior to the public meeting.
