I'm incredibly proud that the Council unanimously passed legislation to create a dedicated source of funding for our Housing Investment Trust Fund at the end of March. The Prince George’s County Council has worked diligently over the past several years to advance Housing Opportunities for All in Prince George’s County. Moving forward this policy recommendation from the Housing Opportunities for All Workgroup will allow the County the preserve existing affordable housing in the County and create new affordable housing options.

Nominate D3 Community Champions
Over the last year, District 3 residents and organizations have come together to support each other amid the pandemic. We have shown our resilience and grown even stronger. There are countless examples of neighbors who have gone above-and-beyond to support and assist our community during this extremely challenging time. Please help us CELEBRATE them!

At the District 3 Virtual Town Hall meeting on April 19th, my office will recognize our first batch of D3 Community Champions. I know a few of our Community Champions, but there are many more that I don’t know about and each deserves recognition. I need YOU to nominate individuals who deserve recognition as a D3 Community Champion.

Did you go above and beyond? Nominate yourself as well! You can submit as many nominations as you'd like. Please use a new form for each nomination: https://tinyurl.com/D3CommunityChampion

A few notes about candidates:
- You can nominate yourself
- You can nominate an individual or an organization
- Candidates can either live in or do work in Council District 3

Nominations to be recognized at the April 19 Town Hall meeting are due by April 14, 2021!
