For Landlords

Description


We operate as a statewide housing authority that primarily serves the very low income population and people with disabilities and other special needs. The department provides landlords participating in the HCV program resources and information to provide low-income families access decent, safe and affordable housing in the neighborhood of their choice. Rental assistance payments are sent directly to the landlord on behalf of a participating family. The family then pays their tenant portion of the rent directly to the landlord.  

The department also partners with mental health agencies, developmental disability service agencies, independent living centers, housing authorities and homeless service agencies. Through this collaborative effort, participants receive the combined benefits of flexible supportive services and rental assistance.

 

Eligibility


Families qualify for the HCV program if their incomes are 50 percent or less of the median income for the area where they will rent a unit. An eligible family can be a single person household that is elderly or disabled, as well as families of two or more.
