Olszewski Announces $1.1M in Rental Assistance

Baltimore County will receive an additional $1.1 million in rental assistance funds from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced Thursday.

The funds are coming from the reallocation of the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program funds. According to a press release from Olzsewski’s office, “Baltimore County was one of only three jurisdictions statewide to receive reallocation funding – obtaining the largest reallocation of federal dollars in the state.”

The county and its nonprofit partners have invested more than $116 million in stabilizing housing since the pandemic began, helping over 8,500 families stay in their homes and avoid eviction. The new funds will help approximately 90 additional households.
