Landlord Incentive Program

Landlord Incentive Program

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program has developed a Landlord Incentive Program aimed at: 

  1. Supporting, retaining, and recruiting new Landlords to the HCV program
  2. To increase the number of units available for HCV families to rent 
  3. To increase the lease-up success rates for vouchers issued
  4. To increase the overall voucher utilization rate for the Auburn Housing Authority (AHA)

The HCV (Section 8) program has some exciting new incentives for Landlords to include the following. 

Signing Bonus (New Landlord Incentive Payment) 

$500 signing bonus will be available for Landlords that signs a new Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract with AHA allowing a Section 8 family to move into one of their available units. Landlords that have not contracted with AHA since January 2018 are eligible. 

Re-Rent Bonus (Vacancy Payments)

‚ÄčLandlords are eligible for up to 2 months of vacancy rental payments for vacancies that occur between Section 8 participants. Payments are available to Landlords that re-rent to another Section 8 participant within 60 days of occupancy.   

Rent now, inspect later

Landlords are able to defer inspections by self-certifying the health and safety of their property, and allow tenants to move immediately. The AHA is required to inspect all Section 8 units. Landlords who elect to defer inspections will have their properties inspected by October 31, 2020. 

Application Expenses

Financial assistance up to $25 may be paid directly to Landlords to cover application costs. 

Landlord Recognition Program 

AHA will begin recognizing long-term Landlords that participate in the Section 8 program. Landlords that are recognized will receive awards and special designations to highlight their status as long-term providers of quality rental units. 

Coming Soon- Winter of 2020

Apartment Repair Program (Capital Improvement Payment) 

‚ÄčLandlords are eligible for up $2,500 to help fund needed repairs to pass inspection. Repayment will be deducted from the first six-month rental assistance payments. 

Becoming an AHA HCV Section 8 Landlord is a simple process. Units must be located in the  AHA's jurisdiction.
