Today, members of Maryland’s congressional delegation announced that Rebuilding Together in Anne Arundel County and the Charles County Commissioners will both receive $50,000 in the form of grants and low-interest loans. Funding comes from USDA’s Rural Development Housing Preservation Grant Program that provides financial support to state and local governments and nonprofits for repairs to housing owned or occupied by low-income individuals.

From the press release:

“The economic crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has left many Maryland families strapped for cash and unable to afford basic home repairs,” the lawmakers said. “These federal dollars will help improve the safety and security of homes across Anne Arundel County and Charles County.
