Welcome to the Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County…

We are located in central Maryland just south of Baltimore and east of Washington, DC on the banks of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay! The Commission is dedicated to strengthening communities and improving the lives of Anne Arundel County citizens focusing on the ownership, management, sustainability and preservation of affordable housing.   Established in 1968, the Housing Commission is proud to have offered 50 years of affordable housing and related services to low and moderate income citizens of Anne Arundel County. The agency currently provides assistance to nearly 3,000 families throughout the county in effort to fulfill our mission to provide quality housing choices and affordable communities.

The Metamorphosis of our Portfolio: The HERITAGE Brand The Housing Commission will complete enhancements, upgrades and renovations at all of our public housing communities 2018-2023.


Utilizing the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program, the agency will convert all of its public housing communities to project-based rental assistance.

Acting as Developer, the agency has partnered with consultants, architects, and engineering firms and investors to complete all of the community and unit enhancements. Meade Village  added 24 new market-rate units and is now Heritage at Severn; Freetown Village is now Heritage at Freetown and has added 36 new market-rate units; creating communities with greater income diversity!

Pinewood Village, Pinewood East, Glen Square, and Stoney Hill (housing our elderly and disabled) will experience significant upgrades to units, common areas, and systems in the upcoming coming years.  Financing Plans for these communities are expected to be completed in 2021 for renovations to begin later in 2022 through 2023.

Each community will undergo a rebrand also under the Heritage umbrella, with new names to identify them!
