The Consider The Person Campaign is focused on changing the hearts and minds of landlords and communities about participants in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly known as Section 8), so that participants may live in any neighborhood they choose.
The Consider the Person Campaign is focused on three specific goals:
- To positively influence perceptions of the Housing Choice Voucher program participants
- To increase utilization of vouchers by renters in their communities of choice
- To increase participation from independent landlords and managed multi-family communities
The Consider the Person Campaign is a project of Community Development Maryland, and is funded through a demonstration grant from the Opportunity Collaborative.
Interviews are available with participating landlords, renters and members of the advisory committee for the Consider The Person campaign. Hi-res images of participants are also available. To request an interview or image, please contact Daniel Waldman.
