What is the Organization's purpose/product/service?
The Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) was established in 1937 to provide federally-funded public housing programs and related services for Baltimore's low-income residents. HABC is the fifth largest public housing authority in the country, with more than 1,000 employees and an annual budget of approximately $300 million. The Agency currently serves over 20,000 residents in more than 10,000 housing units. HABC's portfolio includes 28 family developments, 17 mixed population buildings, 2 senior buildings and scattered sites throughout the City. Baltimore's Housing Choice Voucher program provides an additional 12,000 families with rental housing subsidies each year. The Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) was created in 1968 to consolidate local community development efforts with housing and building code enforcement. With just over 500 employees, HCD strengthens City neighborhoods by attracting investors, developers and home buyers. Through the administration of CDBG, HOME, City bond funds, and other creative financing mechanisms, the Department finances and guides strategic development projects to meet housing and neighborhood needs. To hold property owners accountable and keep neighborhoods safe, HCD monitors construction and building activity and enforces the City's housing and building codes. The Department also provides a host of valuable community services, administers the Head Start program, operates three day care centers, and administers a host of energy assistance programs to residents in need. During the past few years, HABC and HCD have essentially been restructured to operate as one agency to the maximum extent possible. A new organizational structure unifies the neighborhood building and community support functions of the two agencies yet maintains the financial, legal and programmatic integrity of both. This new collaboration, known as Baltimore Housing, coordinates planning and development efforts, eliminates redundancy, and fosters program accountability.
