Welcome to Harford Community Action Agency, Inc.

As Harford County’s designated Community Action Agency, the HCAA’s mission is to help all Harford County individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardships in meeting their housing, food, energy/heating, and/or budget and family counseling needs. We support and encourage them on their path to self-sufficiency.

We accomplish this purpose through a diverse offering of programs and services. Current programs include: Maryland Energy Assistance Program, Homeless Prevention, Homeless Services, Community Food Pantry/Food Bank, Financial Services Program, Case Management, Resume Design and GED Plus.

Our Location

A Field Trip with HdG Middle School’s Delish Cooking Club!

HCAA took 10 middle schoolers, from the Delish Cooking Club at HdG Middle School, on a field trip to put to use the tools they learned completing our 6-week food advocacy programs.

Our first stop was Pizza Hut where the students were able to take a tour of the restaurant, learn about the restaurant operations/possible jobs, and make their own pizzas.  They also ate salad!

Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP)

The Maryland Energy Assistance Program provides assistance with winter fuel bills once during the heating season. The income eligibility for MEAP is 175% of poverty.

Homeless Prevention / Eviction Services

The Homeless Prevention Program helps prevent homelessness by providing residents with up to $500 in grant assistance to pay their rent or mortgage.

Food Pantry / Bank

The Food Pantry / Bank emergency and/or supplemental food is available once every 30 days to clients who are in need of nourishment.
