Housing Situation Outrageous

Aug 21, 2023

It’s hard enough for people employed to pay their rent or mortgage. For people working part-time or on disability or retired, it’s about impossible.

In Baltimore, with 9,000 families still waiting for vouchers to have lower-cost housing, the city opened the process and another 26,000 families put in their applications in just 10 days.

That shows how ridiculous the lack of affordable housing is, and how little the city does about it. The vouchers come from federal funds.
