For a limited time only and while pandemic funding is available, EHA is offering financial incentives to new and current participating Landlords. These incentives are being supported by funds made available through the recent CARES Act. The goal is to increase the number of units available for those clients currently searching with vouchers and to extend affordable housing opportunities into less populated areas.
CURRENT LANDLORD INCENTIVES BEING OFFERED ARE AS FOLLOWS:
$100 INCENTIVE: Current Landlord/New HAP Contract
EHA will offer a $100 incentive for all new Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contracts signed with current landlords between 9/1/2020 and 12/31/2020. Multiple units may qualify for this incentive. *HAP Contract renewals (recertifications) not covered.
$200 INCENTIVE: Current Landlord/New Unit
EHA will offer a $200 incentive to any current participating landlord who signs a new HAP Contract between 9/1/2020 and 12/31/2020 for a unit that has not been subsidized for 12 consecutive months (as of 8/31/2019). Multiple units may qualify for this incentive.
$500 INCENTIVE: New Landlord/New HAP Contract
EHA will offer a $500 incentive to any new landlord participating in the program for the first time who signs a new HAP Contract between 9/1/2020 and 12/31/2020. Multiple units may qualify for this incentive.
*May opt-out for $1000 incentive below.
$1000 INCENTIVE: New Landlord/New HAP Contract/Repair Reimbursement
After a pre-inspection is conducted by EHA, first-time participating landlords may be reimbursed
UP TO $1000 to correct Housing Quality Standard (HQS) Inspection violations for units that
have never been on the voucher program. Repair reimbursements to landlords are contingent upon a HAP Contract being signed for the specific unit between 9/1/2020 and 12/31/2020. Multiple units may qualify for this incentive. *Reimbursement requests up to $1000 must include invoices/receipts for work completed after the pre-inspection and before the HAP Contract is signed.
