HYATTSVILLE, Md. (November 29, 2012) – TOMORROW, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will join Secretary Raymond A.

This year’s grants, totaling $5.5 million statewide, will benefit a total of 58 projects in 19 counties and Baltimore City, as announced by Lt. Governor Brown and DHCD at a press conference held on Wednesday of this week in Baltimore. Nine capital area projects in Prince George’s, Montgomery and Calvert counties received awards totaling $1,615,000. Projects include, but are not limited to, façade improvements, the rehabilitation of blighted commercial properties and streetscape upgrades.
