Owners / Landlords

Landlords are the backbone of the Housing Choice Voucher.  The Housing Choice Voucher program, commonly known as HCV or Section 8, is the Federal government’s primary program for assisting low-income families, the elderly and persons with disabilities to afford rent in the private market.  Landlords provide increased access to housing which in turn provides stability in the community. The active participation in the Section 8 program is essential for its success in providing housing assistance to those in need, promoting fair housing opportunities and creating more inclusive communities.

Why Accept Section 8 Tenants?

1. A substantial part of the tenant’s rent money will show up on time each and every month.

2. It opens you up to a whole new market of potential tenants.

3. Most Section 8 tenants have a harder time moving, thus creating longer term tenants. This means lower turnover and vacancy rates.
