U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) is leading 40 of his colleagues on a bipartisan letter urging increased funding for the Section 4 Capacity Building program. The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 4 Program works with local community development organizations to improve affordable housing, finance small businesses, and provide for other community needs. Last year alone, Maryland organizations received over $445,000 in funding under Section 4 and recipients included organizations like Neighborhood Housing Services of Baltimore, Park Heights Renaissance, the Montgomery Housing Partnership, Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake, and Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna.
