OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is urging county leaders to do a better job delivering millions of available dollars for pandemic-related rental assistance to those who need it.
Hogan spoke Saturday at the annual Maryland Association of Counties convention in Ocean City.
He said more than $500 million in state and federal funds have been made available but counties have only spent about 20% of what’s been provided. He praised four counties — Carroll, Cecil, Howard, and Prince George’s — for their efforts but said others are lagging behind.
Maryland is one of many states that has struggled to get rental-relief funds into the hands of intended recipients.
