Renters Alliance Executive Director and Tenants Work Group Chair Matt Losak accepts legislation signing pen from County Executive Isiah Leggett, December 12.
The passage of Renter Protection Bill 19-15 is good first step in the work that must be done to protect renters in Montgomery County. 19-15 provides common sense and meaningful provisions to help protect the 36% of county residents who rent. We thank the County Council for its unanimous support for this bill. We also thank all of our allies, especially UFCW 1994, the Montgomery County Young Democrats, CHEER, Progressive Neighbors, Safe Silver Spring, Jews United for Justice, Saint Camillus Multicultural Parish and the Catholic Ardiocese of Washington and CASA as well as all of our thousands of Renters, Renter Activists and Tenant Associations.
Montgomery Council approves package of new protections for tenants
(November 29, 2016 | The Washington Post)
The Montgomery County Renters Alliance is a new, independent, nonprofit organization advancing renters rights and security. It provides advocacy, education and support for renters on a range of issues, such as forming tenant associations, improving renter-landlord relations, and fair and predictable rent increases. It also addresses just-cause eviction and advocates for greater support from the county and state governments.
The Renters Alliance was founded in 2011 in response to the County’s Tenant Work Group Report, which called for the establishment of an organization dedicated to advancing renters right and advocating on behalf of renters. In the coming months we will be providing additional information valuable to renters and to all those who support renter security, housing affordability and a stronger community.
Join the alliance by adding your name and information to our growing list of supporters. Encourage your neighbors to join as well. The greater the alliance, the stronger the voice of the rental community!
The Montgomery County Renters Alliance, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization incorporated and registered in the State of Maryland.
Your donations go to supporting Renters Alliance services and programs while building a stronger voice for renters.
