Baltimore County announces an FY23 RFP for Housing Stability Services. Nonprofit and government organizations serving Baltimore County citizens are eligible to apply for grant monies to provide housing stability services (including housing navigation, case management, housing retention, credit repair, etc.) in an effort to maintain housing stability and assist Baltimore County citizens to remain stably housed. Baltimore County is making at least $2.6 million of its ERAP 2 funds available for this effort. Selected vendors will be prequalified to serve as contractors for these funds. Other funding sources may be added to this RFP in the future. Prequalified vendors would be eligible for those funds as well.

Interested vendors must submit their application for Prequalification by Monday, August 15, to be considered for this round of funding.
