BRHC was not the only group disappointed with the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s recent CY 2013 Maryland Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) and Multifamily Rental Financing Program Guide (Guide) – released in February 2013. The comment submissions by Baltimore Regional Fair Housing Group, Maryland Affordable Housing Coalition, and the Maryland ABCD Network all shared similar sentiments with BRHC. To see all comments and recommendations submitted to the MD DHCD, please see TDA’s website for a complete listing.
According to a notice released by MD DHCD on March 13, 2013 “Multifamily Housing Notice 13-03 — Updated Schedules – CY 2013 QAP and Guide and Round (2)“, the next Revised Draft of Maryland 2013 QAP and Guide are scheduled to be released for public comment the week of April 15, 2013.
