Director's Message

Rick Nelson

At the Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA), we are dedicated to increasing the supply and availability of affordable housing, and developing and maintaining healthy, vibrant and strong communities. We offer programs and services that prevent and correct problems that contribute to the physical decline of residential and commercial areas, work with landlords and tenants to ensure fair and equitable relations between the parties, and enforce the local housing code to ensure existing housing is maintained in a safe and sanitary condition.

At this site, you can find information about our programs and services. You can also download copies of our departmental reports, find out about how our department is organized, and follow links to other helpful websites.

We are continuously improving our web site and expanding the information available. We hope you find the website useful and we welcome your comments and questions.
