New Crime Prevention Efforts and Youth Engagement Week Recap 

Dear Prince Georgians,

Today, I held a press conference with our Office of Community Relations, our Police Department, Reverend Tony Lee of Community of Hope AME, and several community partners to announce new crime prevention efforts. As you know, jurisdictions across the country are seeing a rise in violent crime, especially among young people. Unfortunately in Prince George’s County, we haven’t seen an uptick in juvenile crime like this in decades.

I have an urgent plea for all of the parents raising their kids in our wonderful County. Please sit down with your children and have a real conversation. Ask them what’s going on, ask them what they need, ask them if they are scared or stressed out, and ask them why. We need to come together to better understand what is going on with the children of our community, and when we ask, we need to listen.

All of us want to reverse this troubling uptick we’ve seen in violence, but the government cannot simply flip a switch and make it happen. Together we need to fully understand what’s happening with our children, and that understanding needs to start at home.

While government cannot do it alone, we are taking every possible step forward to solve this issue, protect our residents, and protect our community. Today we announced 16 non-profits that have received grant funding from our Hope in Action Anti-Violence Project. These non-profits, known as the Hope Collective, will provide school-based and community wraparound services in areas where violent crime is an issue. Programming will include services such as diversion/re-entry, youth mentoring, after-school enrichment, and employment assistance.
We also announced the formation of our Violence Prevention Task Force, another key component of the Hope in Action Anti-Violence Project. The Violence Prevention Task Force, which consists of 20 community members, will help identify areas of need in the County and create a plan to aid in resource sharing between non-profits and stakeholders, while also developing short and long-term strategies to prevent violence. Additional details regarding membership of the Task Force and Hope Collective are further below.

PGPD Police Chief Malik Aziz also provided several updates on crime prevention efforts, to include strategies that specifically target violent crime, juvenile offenders, carjackings and stolen vehicles. Since January 2021, PGPD has removed over 1,600 weapons/guns off County streets through crime prevention initiatives.

Chief Aziz also announced new initiatives to support County youth. PGPD has launched the Youth Round Table Discussion program, which allows youth to engage in an open and honest conversation with law enforcement and community leaders. Youth are given a seat at the table to express the real concerns they have and offer solutions to law enforcement and County leadership.

PGPD has also formed a new partnership between the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington and the Police Athletic League, which will provide youth with more targeted programs and activities throughout the year. Programming will focus on several outcomes, to include good character, citizenship and healthy lifestyle choices.  

If you didn’t see, last week we recognized Youth Engagement Week in Prince George’s County. Throughout the week, we highlighted some of the many ways the County is creating opportunities for young people to continue to grow and thrive.

To kick off Youth Engagement Week, we announced the official formation of the Prince George’s County Cabinet for Children and Youth. This Cabinet will work to address and respond to the issues facing the County’s children and youth ages 25 years and under. The formation of this Cabinet is yet another important investment we are making in our youth and will allow us to further address their needs in an impactful way while improving their quality of life.

We have also recently launched a Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) through our Office of Human Rights. This unique program helps to educate young people ages 12 to 22 on civil and human rights, as well as social justice issues. The YLA encourages young people to feel empowered and teaches them how they have the power to help make positive change. We are very excited about this program and the impact it will have on how future generations approach human rights issues.
Along with these exciting new initiatives, we also continue to provide opportunities to keep our youth engaged during the summer. Studies have shown that summer youth employment programs and summer recreation programs help keep our youth out of trouble. That is why we created and launched the Alsobrooks Summer Passport Experience last summer. The inaugural program included over 600 participants and provided programming in the areas of entrepreneurship, education, and entertainment.

In addition, the Office of Human Resources Management also continues to spearhead the Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program (SYEP). This award-winning program provides job readiness training, career workshops, and entry-level employment for County youth ages 14 to 22. During the summer of 2021, more than 4,400 youth were offered employment opportunities through Youth@Work/SYEP, despite budget constraints due to COVID-19. Applications for this summer’s program open tomorrow, March 1, so we encourage you to learn more and apply here. 

Taken together, Prince George’s County is offering our youth a great number of opportunities to engage, to learn, and to receive the support they need to thrive. Helping our young people thrive is a necessary step to stem the rise in violent crime, but it’s not the only one we need to take. We want to work together with parents to provide opportunity for our young people. Opportunity can be a guiding light, one that encourages each of us to walk a good path forward, and to lead a good life.

I want to thank all our community partners who have already joined us in our efforts to reduce violent crime. While we have plenty of work ahead, I know that Prince Georgians are strong and resilient, and we can overcome any challenge by working together.

Yours in service,
Angela Alsobrooks 
Prince George’s County Executive

Celebrating Women's History Month

Dear Prince Georgians:

Yesterday officially marked the start of Women’s History Month. The United States has celebrated Women’s History Month during the month of March since 1987 to honor the extraordinary achievements of women, and to promote the many contributions women have made to grow and strengthen our County and nation.

This year’s national theme for Women’s History Month is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” which serves as both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

Women’s History Month serves as a time for us to reflect on the contributions of women to our society. Women have been advocates and leaders for many generations, and we encourage Prince Georgians to take this opportunity to recognize and honor women in our own communities. We are Prince George’s Proud that our County has so many women working and leading in various ways, including in our County Government, and we want to honor all those who have made a positive impact on our lives and in our communities.

Throughout this month, Prince George’s County will celebrate Women’s History Month through a number of events, programs, and activities that honor trailblazing women in our past and present. We encourage you to stay tuned for more information on future events, including our Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon, where we will recognize women in County Government and the community who are making the County an even better place to live, work and play. We will also have a new initiative this year to honor women who have served our community and nation, and we look forward to sharing details about that later this month.

However you choose to celebrate Women’s History Month, let’s all remember to recognize and thank the outstanding women in our lives and our communities.

Yours in service,
Angela Alsobrooks
Prince George’s County Executive

New Affordable Housing for Seniors Underway...CDBG Spotlights SEED 

03/03/2022 - March 2022

New Affordable Housing for Seniors Underway

Prince George’s County is committed to preserving housing affordability and we are working hard to diversify the County’s housing stock.  As County Executive Angela Alsobrooks has said, “We do not get to have quality economic development without affordable housing.”  Our key economic development goals for growing jobs and the commercial tax base must be anchored by infrastructure that serves a range of household incomes, especially around transit-oriented development opportunities. Prince George’s County is growing, and it is important to make the right choices now.  Some of these choices include housing that is affordable for seniors.

Our seniors are an essential part of the fabric of Prince George’s County and developing housing that is affordable will allow them to remain in the County and in their communities.  By utilizing HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) funds, the Housing Investment Trust Fund and Payment in Lieu of Taxes programs, the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is offering seniors access to much-needed affordable housing.

“We are delighted to present these new and wonderful apartment communities for County seniors,” said Aspasia Xypolia, Director of the Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development.  “We continue to work closely with residents, community-based organizations, and housing advocacy groups to identify the right balance of programs and opportunities to deliver upon our housing goals and to turn these shared visions into realities for our community.”
DHCD is highlighting three (3) senior housing communities currently in development:  Homes at Oxon Hill, The Residences at Springbrook in Clinton, and The Lewis, in Suitland.

Here’s a brief profile on each property:

The Lewis
The Lewis is a new construction senior property consisting  of 137 mixed income units, with 133 affordable and 4 market-rate units.  This senior community is being developed by Mission First Housing Development Corporation and the L.A. Bolden Company.  It will open this month and is currently accepting lease applications. 

The Lewis is located in the new Towne Square at Suitland Federal Center next to the Suitland Metro Center.  DHCD contributed $1.5 million in HOME funds and a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) was approved by the County to make the rents affordable.

The Lewis will offer residents one and two bedroom units, some with a washer/dryer in the unit.  Amenities include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a fitness center, yoga studio, on-site laundry facilities, a roof-top garden, community rooms and more. Call The Lewis Leasing Office at (240) 312-5252 to apply. 

Homes at Oxon Hill
Homes at Oxon Hill recently broke ground for a new construction senior apartment community with 163 mixed income units.  There will be 147 affordable units and 16 at market rate.  The development team for this project includes Homes for America, the Housing Authority of Prince George’s County, and the Foundation Development Group.  DHCD provided $1.5 million in HOME funds and the County approved a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) to ensure affordable housing.

This five-story building will be located at 1313 Southern Avenue in Oxon Hill, next to the Southern Avenue Metro Station and across the street from United Medical Center Hospital.  The complex will include 3,000 square feet of commercial retail space on the entrance level.  The projected completion date is June 2023.

The Residences at Springbrook
The Residences at Springbrook is a new construction, planned senior apartment community with all 90 residences being affordable units. Housing Initiative Partnership (HIP), Parallax Development Group, LLC and Bank of America Community Development Corporation make up the development team for this senior community.  DHCD provided $3 million in HOME Funds and the County approved a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) to make this senior rental complex affordable.

Located at 8230 Schultz Road in Clinton, the apartment building will include a large multi-purpose community room with a kitchenette, a party room, and a fitness room. There will be common areas and laundry rooms on the second, third, and fourth floors. The Residences at Springbrook is slated to be completed in August 2023.

CDBG Spotlight on SEED
The Sowing Empowerment & Economic Development, Inc. (SEED) is a sub-recipient of the Community Development Block Grant-COVID (CDBG-CV) funding.  SEED provides an emergency food distribution center for low to moderate-income areas, responding to those impacted by COVID-19.

Prince George’s County was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the assistance of CDBG -CV funding, SEED scaled up and stepped in to address food insecurity at a critical time.

SEED has been at the forefront of providing emergency services to the community for nearly 20 years.  In the last 12 months of the pandemic, SEED served more than 45,000 individuals from 12,000 households through community collaborations and joint partnerships. SEED distributed 300,000 pounds of emergency food, 240,000 pounds of fresh produce, 72,000 hot meals, and provided 2,800 summer meals to children in Riverdale.

SEED also serves as a food hub to 9 additional food pantries in Councilmanic Districts 1 through 4 in Prince George's County. 

DHCD is shining the spotlight on the great work and community partnership SEED provides the residents of Prince George’s County
