RPBV Program

About the Regional Project Based (RPBV) Program

The Regional Project Based Voucher (RPBV) Program is a joint effort between six Public Housing Authorities throughout the Baltimore Region, the Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership (BRHP), and the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC). The goal of the Program is to encourage the development of quality affordable rental housing in high opportunity areas – safe neighborhoods with good public schools near job growth within metropolitan Baltimore using PBV in newly constructed, rehabilitated, or existing housing. The Baltimore Regional PBV Program was created to address the region’s current shortage of quality affordable rental housing and to promote a more equitable distribution of affordable housing opportunities.

Partner Agencies

  • Baltimore County Office of Housing
  • Baltimore Metropolitan Council

  • Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County

Eligible Participants

When homes attached to the project-based vouchers awarded by this program are ready to live in, our program will make referrals from the housing choice voucher waiting lists of the partner public housing authorities listed above. Most of those waiting lists are closed, with only the Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County and Harford County accepting applications. (You do not need to live in a jurisdiction currently to apply for a voucher there.) If you are currently on one or more of our partner housing authorities’ housing choice voucher waiting lists, you are already in line to participate in our Regional Project-Based Voucher Program.

If you are not already on a waiting list, or need assistance sooner, we suggest that you contact the United Way of Central Maryland by calling 211 or going to this web site. You can also go to www.MdHousingSearch.org, an online database sponsored by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development that has a focus on affordable rental homes. Finally, if you are homeless, the Health Care Access Maryland Rapid Rehousing program may be able to help you, although the process will likely take 2-6 months. You can contact them at (410) 649-0529.
