The Rental Allowance Program (RAP) provides grants to local governments to provide flat rent subsidies to low-income families who either are homeless or have an emergency housing need. The goal of the program is to enable these households to move from homelessness or temporary emergency housing into housing that is more permanent and to return to self-sufficiency. Eligible residents are low-income families who are homeless, in danger of becoming homeless, or in need of emergency housing. Incomes of assisted households cannot exceed 30 percent of the statewide or area median income, whichever is higher.
Anne Arundel County Community Action Agency administers the RAP program for the City of Annapolis. For additional information, please call Anne Bowie at 410-626-1900, extension 1004.
