Strong, Stable & Connected Communities

Maryland is at a critical juncture. While the State has some of the most economically prosperous communities in the nation, many neighborhoods and rural areas continue to suffer the effects of poverty, disinvestment, and a history of segregation and racial discrimination.

In addition, many long-stable middle-income areas are facing new demographic challenges as their population and housing ages
