New Nonprofit Advocates for Renters

Tired of high rents? Unreasonable rent increases? Abusive or neglectful landlords? Not being heard as a renter? Help is available in Montgomery County.

The Montgomery County Renters Alliance -- a new, independent, nonprofit organization advancing renters’ rights and security -- provides advocacy, education and support for renters on a range of issues. Included are: 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 alliance was founded in 2011 in response to the County’s Tenant Work Group Report, which called for the creation of an organization dedicated to advancing renters’ rights and advocating on behalf of renters.
