Housing and Human Services


The City of Frederick Department of Housing and Human Services (HHS) is a new department, established in July 2020. With oversight of three divisions, Housing, Community Action Agency and Human Services, HHS administers a wide array of programs and services to families and individuals; all aimed at ameliorating the causes and effects of poverty.

Through a wide array of programs and services, we provide food, housing, medical care, and other forms of assistance to families and individuals that are low-income or homeless.
