The Frederick County government is taking steps to construct affordable housing units on the Prospect Center campus, which the county acquired in October 2021 for $20 million to use as a multi-agency complex.

On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. David Trone announced he was requesting $7.5 million in federal Community Project Funding for affordable housing units at the Prospect Center. If approved, the money would be tied to fiscal year 2025.

Other local projects covered by Trone’s requests for FY 2025 Community Project Funding include:

  • $5,720,000 for Middletown to install an enhanced nutrient removal system at its wastewater treatment plant
  • $5,000,000 for the city of Frederick to repair and upgrade sidewalks
  • $4,000,000 for the city of Brunswick to upgrade its water and wastewater treatment plants
  • $3,000,000 for the Brunswick Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Company to construct a new building
  • $1,919,950 for the Frederick-based nonprofit Justice Jobs of Maryland
  • $1,041,000 for the FC Frederick Clean Water project
