This monograph provides an intensive look at the low-end rental market in Baltimore--its renters, housing stock, ownership and government programs. Policy remedies are proposed to address the affordability, physical inadequacy, ownership profile, and policy deficits uncovered. Approaches include creation of an affordable housing trust fund, institutional ownership, and revisions to, and coordination among, the code enforcement, lead paint abatement and rental rehabilitation programs.
