In Today’s hot real estate markets, there are little to no incentives for landlords to rent to low-income families through the HCV program. Although the program offers on-time and consistent rent payments every month, both landlords and tenants are faced with a plethora of challenges that serve as barriers to renting and finding adequate affordable housing.
As Public Housing Authorities (PHA’s) undergo major redevelopment through the RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration, LIHTC (Low-Income Housing Tax Credit) and other affordable housing development programs; public housing residents in most cases will be granted Section 8 vouchers to assist them in their relocation efforts.
The shortage of available landlords is proving disastrous for housing staff and their budgets and is also contributing to an increase in homelessness and displacement. This forum hopes to bring resolution to the relocation process, attract mission driven landlords and assist voucher holder in obtaining decent, safe and affordable housing.
