Is my property eligible for the Baltimore Mobility Program?
All styles of decent and safe housing located in Opportunity Neighborhoods are eligible. This would include apartments and single-family homes, provided the rent is reasonable for the type, size, condition and location. Eligible units must be approved Opportunity Neighborhoods in selected Allowable Census Tract areas of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties There are also a few opportunity neighborhoods in Baltimore City.

How to determine if a property is in an Opportunity census tract
BRHP has a tool to check whether a home is in an Opportunity Area and what range of rents are allowable in that area. Use the BRHP Opportunity Area Search Tool. This tool merely provides an estimate of the range of rents allowable in an area. The rent that you may be able to get in a given area should fall within this range and will depend on what utilities are paid by whom. BRHP will use rental comparables to make the final determination as to whether a rent is reasonable.
If you are not able to find information about an address using the search tool, you can use the following method to see if an address is in an Opportunity Area:
- Go to the FFIEC Geocoding Website.
- Enter your property's address in the "Address" field at the top of the page and hit "Search"
- Look for the Census Tract number in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. It will be in the "Tract Code" field and will be a 6 digit number with two decimal places.
4. Look for that Census Tract on this list of Opportunity Census Tracts. If your property is located in one of the Opportunity tracts, BRHP can list the property in our available rental property database and connect potential renters with you.
5. Prior to approval of a unit, we must determine if the rent is reasonable compared to other unassisted units in the same area. The Baltimore Housing Mobility Program is required to certify to HUD that the rent that has been approved is reasonable and will not have the effect of inflating rents in the community.
