Following a year of dialogue with partners in the housing industry, yesterday the Maryland Association of Housing and Redevelopment Agencies (MAHRA) adopted a ground-breaking Commitment to Excellence for administration of the Section 8 rental assistance program in Maryland.  According to Legislative Chair, Richard Willson, the list of Best Practices outlines how the Maryland agencies who administer the Section 8 program work collaboratively with both landlords and lower income households to use scarce federal dollars to foster customer-friendly and efficient operations.  Willson is the recently retired executive director for the Housing Authority of Washington County.  MAHRA President, Marsha Parham noted that the Section 8 Best Practices will be used to guide professional development, one of the professional association's key missions.  Parham is the Director of the Baltimore County Housing Office.
