Are you having trouble paying your rent due to COVID-19? You may be eligible for financial help with current or past-due rental payments.
How you apply for help depends on where you live. The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development is working with local jurisdictions and property management companies to distribute federal funds.
Funding is limited and every household may not receive assistance.
You can call 2-1-1 for the latest information on the Maryland Emergency Rental Assistance program or call 1-877-546-5595.
Find Local Rent Help
In some Maryland communities, local agencies run the rental assistance program. The programs may have different names and community partners.
Find a local rental assistance program and learn about the application process, required documentation, income guidelines and partner agencies.
Financial help may also be available through a local nonprofit, church or agency. Search the 211 database for housing-related assistance programs or call 2-1-1 and speak to an Information and Referral Specialist 24/7/365.
