It Pays To Be A Landlord!


First-Time Landlord Lease-up Incentive

HACC will offer a $500 incentive to new landlords who agree to lease a unit to a voucher holder. New landlords can earn the incentive for up to five (5) units for a total of $2,500.

Previous landlords that have been inactive with HACC and the HCV program for at least 3 years are eligible for the First-Time Landlord Lease-up incentive.

Vacancy Payments

HACC will offer vacancy payments to participating landlords who agree to re-lease their units to families on the voucher program. Landlords may receive up to one month’s contract rent for renting their unit to another voucher holder within 60 days of the previous voucher holder vacating the unit. Vacancy payments may be claimed one time per year per unit.

Emergency Housing Voucher Incentive

HACC will offer a one-time bonus per unit leased to any landlord who agrees to lease a unit to an EHV recipient. Landlords can receive this incentive an unlimited number of times.

High Opportunity Area Incentive Program

HACC will offer incentives to landlords who lease units in high opportunity areas. Incentives ranging from $500 to $1,500 are based on the classification of income level in the census tract the landlord’s property is located. Income levels are defined as low, moderate, middle and upper.
