Affordable Rental Housing

As of April 1, 2019, the city will no longer accept or process MPDU application in the rental program. Applicants must submit the MPDU application at the rental properties.

The City of Rockville’s Moderately Priced Dwelling Unit (MPDU) Program offers affordable rents through its MPDU program. MPDUs are available in a number of properties throughout the city.
