HABC AS AN AGENCY
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. HABC is the fifth largest public housing authority in the country, with more than 600 employees.
Currently, HABC owns and manages 7000 public housing units in 21 sites and developments. HABC serves over 23,810 households through public housing, the Housing Choice Voucher Program, HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD), and other rental assistance programs.
4,454 public housing units have converted or are projected to close by the end of this year under the RAD program, generating over $975 million in investment to renovate and preserve the long-term affordability of these units. HABC has plans to convert approximately 1,382 additional public housing units to RAD in future years.
