Collaboration is key. Without participating landlords, we couldn’t offer rental assistance programs in Washington County, reducing the ability of over 650 households to afford their home. Washington County CDA rental programs are a partnership between the community members we serve, our funders, and the 145 landlords that participate in our rental assistance programs. Our landlord partners are critical to maintaining and increasing affordable housing options in Washington County. Thank you!
If you own rental housing, you are eligible to accept rental assistance. We hope to welcome you as a partner soon!
How Rental Assistance Works
The process of renting to a tenant with a voucher is similar to renting to a family who does not have assistance. You screen and select your tenants using your standard screening criteria. You collect the full amount of rent and maintain your property.
The goal of rental assistance is to expand the housing opportunities for low income individuals or families by helping them pay rent. This allows residents to rent the home that works for them, and for landlords to rent to the tenants who work for their business.
Your participation by providing affordable homes through these programs is key to its success. Thank you.
