BALTIMORE — A local program is helping residents with housing issues. The Baltimore City Community Action Partnership launched its rental assistance program on Thursday.

The program helps income-qualifying families with a court ordered eviction. It includes self-sufficiency case management to keep families stably housed.

"We are helping residents stop an eviction through our eviction prevention program but we're also offering free financial literacy and college one workshops here at Morgan State University," said Ebony Wilder of the Baltimore City Community Action Partnership

The workshops are free and open to all youth in Baltimore City ages 13 to 21.

On Monday, July 1, residents can stop by any of the five Community Action Partnership centers to sign up for energy assistance which subsidizes gas and electric bills.
