Rent Subsidies

The Parkman Corporation provides rental subsidies to renters. The type of subsidy provided to apartment renters in Baltimore, MD by this property is Project Based Sec. 8.

This subsidy allows the renter to pay 30% of his or her income for rent while the subsidy pays the difference. To qualify, a renter must earn 50% or less of the Area Median Income.

There is a minimum rent payment of not less than $25 and as much as $50 for all subsidy recipients at this property. That means that even if a renter has zero income, they will still be required to pay rent. In recent years, there have been various legislative proposals to increase the Section 8 minimum rent but advocates make the valid point that minimum rents affect the poorest of the poor.
