Why Become a Landlord?

Participation in BHA’s HCV Program provides all of the following benefits:

Guaranteed Rent Payments

BHA will pay your Housing Assistance Payment (HAP), the portion of the rent that covers the gap between what the resident can afford to pay based on income and what the market demands — on time every month and paid directly to you via direct deposit.

You Choose Your Own Residents

Select and screen your Housing Choice Voucher resident the same way you select any other resident.

Large Applicant Base

You will have a large pool of potential applicants to choose from, helping to keep your vacancy rates to a minimum.  You can and should screen any potential HCV applicants just as you would with market applicants.


You sign a contract with the Housing Authority and a Lease with the resident. Your relationship with the resident is virtually like that of any other resident on the open market.
