Update on Process to Administer 278 Emergency Housing Vouchers
Tuesday Jun 15th, 2021
The City of Baltimore is grateful for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the allocation of 278 Emergency Housing Vouchers to combat homelessness in Baltimore.
Since the May 24, 2021 announcement, the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) has been in conversation with the Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services (MOHS) and Baltimore’s Continuum of Care (CoC) regarding administration of the vouchers. Please note that guidance surrounding this new program is still being reviewed and a plan is not yet in place. Referrals are not being accepted at this time. We are all committed to developing an equitable system to house our most vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness.
Stay tuned for updates from HABC, MOHS, and CoC in July. Thank you for your patience!
