Housing Choice Voucher For Landlords

For Tenants


Being a landlord participant in the Housing Choice Voucher Program provides the satisfaction of making it possible for low-income families to enjoy quality, affordable housing. Landlords benefit as well by enjoying the following aspects of the program:

  • Stable and prompt payments mailed on the last business day of the month
  • Annual inspections of the unit(s) at no additional cost
  • Fair market rental rates
  • Renter responsibilities defined in the lease addendum

Housing Choice Voucher Program tenants typically pay 30% - 40% of their adjusted income for rent, while a rent subsidy (paid by the CMHA Housing Choice Voucher Program) covers the difference between the approved contract rent and the tenant's rent payment.
