Landlord Supports

The Montgomery County Landlord Supports is a partnership that is committed to providing permanent housing to all County residents exiting homelessness.

Are you interested in quickly matching with potential tenants for your rentals? By partnering with Montgomery County’s Services to End and Prevent Homelessness (SEPH), landlords can take advantage of several special incentives while ensuring that their units remain consistently leased. Minimize your risks and increase your reward by directly connecting to resources, supported tenants, and networking opportunities for future partnership.
