Governor Announces Renewal of Affordable Housing Program for Marylanders With Disabilities

September 4th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the State of Maryland is renewing its successful partnership with The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to implement the Affordable Rental Housing Opportunities for People with Disabilities initiative. 

This collaborative effort, overseen jointly by the Maryland Departments of Disabilities (MDOD), Housing and Community Development (DHCD), and Health (MDH), will finance the creation of affordable and integrated community living opportunities statewide for extremely low-income people with disabilities.

“Our state truly is stronger when all of our citizens are able to contribute to their communities and reap the rewards of those contributions,” said Governor Hogan. “By providing affordable housing for those who need it most, this program is one more way that we are working to create a safer, more inclusive, and more equitable future for all Marylanders.” 

This initiative supports Marylanders with service needs and prioritizes designated populations in greatest need of housing, including young adults with aging caregivers, young adults aging out of foster care, and individuals experiencing homelessness.

    Notice he fails to cite any contributions this favored group has made or ever will make. He does, however, note some of their many needs. Billions in debt and more welfare spending. Disability has been power for decades and still is as we find ourselves in end of days.
