The Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly known as Section 8) is a program from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It helps families with a low income, seniors, and people with disabilities pay for rental housing.

Even if you don't qualify for rental assistance through these agencies, they may be able to refer you to a community organization that can help. You may also search for and contact community or nonprofit organizations in your area. They may help you directly or offer you referral information.

Public housing is state-owned, affordable rental houses or apartments. It's intended for families with low incomes, seniors, and people with disabilities. Found nationwide, public housing comes in all sizes and types, from single-family houses to high-rise apartments. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers the program.

Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing new actions to increase fairness in the rental market and further principles of fair housing. These actions align with a new Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights that the Administration is also releasing today. The Blueprint lays out a set of principles to drive action by the federal government, state and local partners, and the private sector to strengthen tenant protections and encourage rental affordability. Key actions announced today include:

In addition, the Administration is rallying state and local stakeholders and private housing actors to drive further action to protect renters in line with the Blueprint. As part of this effort, the Administration is launching the Resident-Centered Housing Challenge (Challenge), a call to action to housing providers and other stakeholders to strengthen practices and make their own independent commitments that improve the quality of life for renters. The Challenge, which will occur during the Spring of 2023, also encourages states, local, Tribal, and territorial governments to enhance existing policies and develop new ones that promote fairness and transparency in the rental market. Early commitments in support of the Challenge, which would affect over 15 million rental units, include:

Rental scams happen when either a property owner or potential tenant misrepresents themselves. Rental scams also misrepresent the terms and availability of a rental property. Fake ads and fake responses to rental ads can hurt both tenants and property owners.

All non-owner-occupied properties in Baltimore City, including one and two-family dwellings, multi-family dwellings (3 or more units), vacant buildings, and vacant lots are required to be registered each year. The registration period is January through December and property registration fees must be paid every year for the property to be considered registered. Registration is required whether or not the property is a rental, whether or not it is occupied, unoccupied, vacant, and whether or not it is generating income.

All non-owner-occupied properties in Baltimore City that are rental properties must be licensed to operate as a rental, in addition to being registered. To obtain a rental license, the property must meet the following requirements:

Current existing licenses will remain valid until the expiration date on the license. If you have an existing rental license, you are still required to register your property in the new online portal, but you will not have to resubmit inspection reports or verify the lead certification information. New inspection reports must be obtained and submitted prior to the expiration date on the current rental license and the lead certification information must be entered to obtain a new license.

For all new rental property registrations, inspection reports MUST BE SUBMITTED WITHIN 30 DAYS of the inspections for one and two-family dwellings and WITHIN 90 DAYS of the inspection for multi-family dwellings (3 or more units). Inspection reports submitted out of this date range will not be accepted and you will need to obtain new inspection reports. Section 8 inspection reports must not be older than one year. New/Initial rental licenses will be issued for two years. Subsequent licenses will be valid for three years

You may apply for a new Short Term Rental license by clicking the link below. Any existing Short Term rental license that expires between January 1, 2022, and August 31, 2022, will remain valid until further notice.

Since its launch, the Miami-Dade County Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) has committed $148 million in direct emergency rental assistance to help more than 22,000 families avoid involuntary displacement, which makes the County one of the most successful federally funded emergency rental assistance programs in the nation.

Emergency rental assistance programs throughout the United States have paused accepting new applications when the demand exceeded available resources. Both the State of Florida and City of Miami, when faced with limited emergency rental assistance resources temporarily paused or closed their application portals.

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program 2.4 provides rental payment assistance for up to 18 months, if you meet certain income qualifications and are experiencing financial hardship during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

FEES: There are no fees to register a rental property; however, failure to register will result in penalties. There is a $100 inspection fee per unit to be inspected. Payment of the inspection fee is due at the time of the inspection, and a unit shall not pass inspection until the fee is paid.

EXEMPTIONS: Owner-occupied, mobile home parks, vacant units, hotels, motels, licensed medical or care facilities, educational, religious and medical institutions are exempt from the Rental Housing Improvement Program. All other residential rental properties must be registered for free; however, some properties are exempt from inspections. If the rental property or units within the rental property are less than 10 years old or undergo routine inspections from another governmental agency, an online Application for Exemption (for inspection) can be submitted once registration of the rental property is complete.

The Anti-Slum Enforcement Team (ASET) is dedicated to battling urban blight and improving the lives of City residents by encouraging voluntary code compliance and initiating legal proceedings focusing on the worst violators of housing health and safety laws. ASET will seek to obtain compliance through intensive and focused code enforcement efforts, including expedited and through civil litigation and potentially criminal prosecution of the worst offenders, but not burdening property owners who are complying with the law and providing safe and habitable housing. The mission of ASET is to increase the stock of habitable rental housing by pursuing violators to obtain code compliance. To see a listing of active, proposed, and completed ASET cases, see the ASET Status Report 03-24-23

Owners of Rental Properties can obtain a Rental Permit by completing and submitting the Rental Property Permit Application to the Technical Services Department. Once a permit has been obtained the permit holder must obtain a passing rental inspection within 90 days of the issuance of the permit. Once a passing inspection has taken place a Certificate of Compliance will be issued to the permit holder. This Certificate of Compliance is good for three years (from the issuance date of the rental permit). When a Rental Property Certificate of Compliance expires, the rental property falls into a state of non-compliance and a new Certificate of Compliance is required. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain an active Certificate of Compliance.
