Welcome to the Montgomery County Renters Alliance, Inc. Website

Founded in 2010, the Montgomery County Renters Alliance, Inc.  is an independent, nonprofit organization advancing renters rights and security. We are the only regional nonprofit dedicated exclusively to providing renter education, outreach, organizing and advocacy. We support renters on a range of issues, such as forming tenant associations, improving renter-landlord relations, protecting and advancing renters’ rights 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 2010 in response to the County’s Tenant Work Group Report, which called for the establishment of an organization dedicated to advancing renters’ rights and advocating on behalf of renters.

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.


The Renters Alliance is a proud partner of the Maryland Complete Count Census Campaign. We will include Census information in our outreach efforts and plan activities to encourage renters to be counted in the Census.
