Maryland’s governor wants to tackle the state’s housing shortage

January 12, 2024

Wednesday was the start of the 2024 Maryland General Assembly session, and Governor Wes Moore wants housing to be a big priority this year. The state is short 96,000 homes due to decades of underbuilding, and the Moore administration just announced three proposals to fix that, which we’re calling Moore Housing (the administration is free to use this if they choose). There are three parts: to streamline the approval process; to increase financing for affordable housing development; and to strengthen renter protections.
