Montgomery Co. council asks Md. governor to help fend off ‘massive wave of evictions’

March 8, 2023

Some 17,000 Maryland families are at risk of being evicted from their homes, and the Montgomery County council is asking for funding to help keep that from happening. “Higher housing costs and the looming end of assistance payments to renters could lead to a new eviction crisis,” Council President Evan Glass said in a statement. The council on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution calling on Gov. Wes Moore and state lawmakers to allocate $175 million in the fiscal year 2024 budget to help families struggling to make rent.
