Statewide COVID-19 evictions moratorium remains in place
ANNAPOLIS, MD-Governor Larry Hogan today announced that Maryland’s 24 local jurisdictions can begin applying for $16 million in Maryland Eviction Prevention Partnership grants, which will help support local rental assistance programs across the state.
“Maryland was one of the first states in the nation to implement a moratorium on evictions for tenants affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have backed that up with targeted relief programs,” said Governor Hogan. “These grants will help ensure more of our citizens can remain safe and secure in their homes.”
Through the Maryland Eviction Prevention Partnership, the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development is awarding federal Community Development Block Grant funding across local jurisdictions in Maryland to prevent Marylanders from being evicted from their homes.Applications are due October 2nd.
