The Arc Maryland Advocates for Bill Banning Housing Discrimination Based on Source of Income

The Arc Maryland has been advocating for passage of the Home Act of 2017 (HB 172/SB 728).  This bill bans discrimination in residential sales and rentals based on source of income.  Many people with I/DD face housing discrimination due to their use of Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and other public benefits.  HB 172 has passed the Maryland House of Delegates and is now pending before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.
