The RAD conversion of Fort Cumberland Homes  to River Bend Court is progressing well.  This $19.34 million project is expected to begin July 10, 2020 and will provide a substantial renovation to this 1960 development.   No current tenants will be displaced or otherwise loose their apartment.


The City of Cumberland is preparing its FY2020 – FY2024 Consolidated Plan, a document that guides the use of approximately $1 million in federal funds for meeting community development needs in Cumberland. We are conducting a survey to find out what housing and economic development issues are most important to Cumberland residents. The survey is confidential and responses to this survey will be critical for shaping how the City prioritizes this federal funding over the next five years. We encourage you to forward this invitation to participate in the survey to anyone you think needs to have his or her voice heard. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
