BRHP Homeownership Program

The Thompson Partial Consent Decree directed the implementation of a Homeownership Demonstration Program (HDP). Under the Housing Authority of Baltimore City’s Moving to Work Demonstration (MTW) plan, BRHP operates two HUD-approved HDP’s:

  1. Direct Homeownership Second Mortgage Program
  2. Section 8 Direct Homeownership Second Mortgage Program

BRHP discontinued enrollment into its homeownership programs in 2013, but still provides services and support to initial participants through payment assistance, counseling and referrals. More on these homeownership programs can be found in our Administrative Plan.

Current Participants

We understand that owning a home is as big of a commitment as it is an achievement. As your trusted housing partner, BRHP is here to support you. We’ve created a packet of homeownership resources, including a resource guide, legal information and website links to resources right in your community to support you as a homeowner. We hope you find this information useful. If you have any additional questions for BRHP, please don’t hesitate to contact our Managing Director for Research & Innovation, Pete Cimbolic, at
