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.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and rent crisis, the Housing Commission will not begin filing eviction action for failure to pay rent, or assess late fees and court costs until January 1, 2022. However, in cases whereby a unit has been vacated and the agency is unable to acquire possession, the agency may take such action as necessary (if possible under federal, state and local protocol) to obtain possession of the vacated unit in order to shelter applicants in dire need of affordable housing.
If you are delinquent on your rent the Housing Commission has Emergency Rental Assistance Program Funds (ERAP) to provide rental arrears payments to residents residing in properties managed or recipients of housing vouchers administered by the Housing Commission. Please contact your manager or agency representative via phone or email for more information on how to apply. Clients that already submitted applications for rent relief funds and are awaiitng approval will not have any legal action taken against them until final decisions are made. Please refer to the coorespondence received from the Housing Commission with detailed informaiton relating to the HUD Public Housing Notice 2021-19.

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 enhancements. Currently, Meade Village is projected to add 24 new market-rate units; 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. Financing Plans for these communities are expected to be completed in 2020 for renovations to begin later that year through 2023.
Each community will undergo a rebrand also under the Heritage umbrella, with new names and color schemes to identify them!
