“We are pleased to announce that we have accepted all applications submitted from Aug. 1 through Aug. 14… It’s abundantly clear there is a need for affordable housing in Baltimore based on the overwhelming response we received over the two-week period,” said HABC President and CEO Janet Abrahams.

The Housing Authority will randomly determine the order on the waitlist for each applicant.
