Landlord Engagement Program

Did you know that private landlords are the largest suppliers of affordable housing in the country?

The Landlord Engagement Program is a fair housing initiative aimed at increasing outreach and education to private landlords on the subject of (rental) housing barriers for low- to moderate income households. The Landlord Engagement aims to, not only increase outreach to landlords, but to increase partnerships with local landlords resulting in more affordable housing for those that we serve. Our target population are Howard County’s hard to serve low-income population.

The Benefits for landlords include:

  • Timely rent payments;
  • Access to program liaison to address tenant concerns;
  • Bi-monthly home inspections;
  • Cut costs: NO advertising costs.


Landlords or realtors interested in joining the Landlord Engagement Program or learning more about the program are encouraged to call (443) 518-7661 for more details.

The program is funded by Howard County Department of Housing through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant
