The Maryland Department of Disabilities (MDOD) is charged with unifying and improving the delivery of services to people with disabilities through collaborative partnerships.  MDOD seeks to advance the rights and interests of Marylanders with disabilities so that they may fully participate in their communities. Through its housing-specific efforts, the Department of Disabilities works to increase affordable and accessible housing opportunities for persons with disabilities. MDOD, in collaboration with Maryland’s Housing Finance agency, the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, administers the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Housing Opportunities Initiative for Persons with Disabilities, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Demonstration,  and the Bridge Subsidy program, which links individuals in nursing homes and institutions to temporary housing subsidies until permanent support can be located.
