Sites Available for Affordable Housing Development

Montgomery County continues to build on its recent successes in adding to the affordable housing stock by offering 18 County-owned properties for the development of affordable housing. The County invites the development community to submit letters of interest for development of the properties with affordable housing.

  • Open House to Present Properties: May 3, 2022 at 10:30 AM
    (101 Monroe Street, Rockville - Auditorium, Lobby Level)
  • Deadline for Questions: May 18, 2022
  • Deadline for Letters of Interests: June 1, 2022
The County intends to solicit Requests for Developer Proposals (RFDPs) for the first round of sites later this summer. With the exception of sites where senior affordable housing will be requested, the County will generally seek proposals that provide ownership opportunities, serve households at 30-120% Area Median Income, and emphasize two- and three-bedroom units. Additional details on County preferences and requirements will be listed in the RFDPs. Information on RFDPs will be posted on this webpage as it becomes available.

Our Mission

The Office of Planning and Development implements and manages the County’s redevelopment projects by creating opportunities for public-private partnerships that leverage County assets and facilitate Executive initiatives.

OPD advises the County Executive and elected officials on planning and land use matters related to County land and the optimal use of County resources, managing facility planning, acquisition of land for County facilities and disposition of County-owned land no longer needed for public use. 

Finally, OPD manages special projects that utilize the team’s unique and varied areas of expertise.
