Alice Kennedy joined the Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development in 2016 as Deputy Commissioner for Homeownership and Housing Preservation. She served as Acting Commissioner beginning in August of 2020 and was appointed permanent Commissioner in September of 2021.

Having been with the City of Baltimore in various capacities since December of 2010, Kennedy has extensive experience in planning and development, project management, operations, real estate, sustainability, and strategic planning. When serving as Deputy Commissioner for Homeownership and Housing Preservation, she focused on innovative solutions to help residents and best practices to coordinate and deliver services. Additionally, she oversaw the City's Weatherization Program, Lead Hazard Reduction Program, Office of Rehabilitation Services, Office of Homeownership, Tax Sale Prevention Coordinator, Summer Food Program, Baltimore Energy Challenge, and Baltimore Energy Initiative.

As Acting Commissioner, Kennedy led the Agency with a high level of transparency, customer engagement, and a focus on community outreach and customer service. She charted a course for innovation and modernization of the Agency's internal processes, including platforms that will improve the customer experience and efficacy of the City's disposition of property assets. She continues to advance the City's important work on lead hazard reduction, and she keeps a focus on the intersection of health and housing in her approach to community development.

Commissioner Kennedy leads with a strong focus on approaching community development from an equity perspective and is working to advance the city's trajectory to account for the missteps of the economic and community development of the past.

Ms. Kennedy earned a bachelor's degree in business management from Goucher College.
