Who We Are
The Housing Committee focuses on housing in Montgomery County especially affordable housing, special needs housing, and fair housing and accommodations. We are currently seeking a new chair or co-chair for the committee. The Committee typically meets monthly.
What We Do
Study and support policies and programs to increase the supply of affordable housing, prevent discrimination in housing and public accommodations, and meet the housing needs of those with special needs, especially the homeless. Our current emphasis is on advocacy for legislation that furthers League housing policy positions. We have a longstanding interest in the MPDU program and have recently supported County and State legislation to address tenant issues.
What We’re Keeping an Eye On
- The housing element of the update to the County’s General Plan currently underway and known as Thrive Montgomery 2050
- The need to protect and preserve existing affordable housing
- Tenant issues and results of the recent impact of COVID 19 on rental housing
