    Baltimore Housing: Two Agencies, One Name


    The Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) was established in 1937 to provide federally-funded public housing programs and related services for Baltimore’s low-income residents. The Agency currently serves over 40,000 residents in more than 14,000 housing units. HABC’s portfolio includes 18 family developments, 21 mixed population buildings and scattered sites throughout the City. Baltimore’s Housing Choice Voucher program provides an additional 12,000 families with rental housing subsidies each year.

    The Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) was created in 1968 to consolidate local community development efforts with housing and building code enforcement. With just over 500 employees, HCD strengthens City neighborhoods by attracting investors, developers and home buyers. To hold property owners accountable and keep neighborhoods safe, HCD monitors construction and building activity and enforces the City’s housing and building codes. The Department also provides a host of valuable community services.
