Why should landlord participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program?
Committed property owners and managers such as you provide valuable housing opportunities for qualified families. Participation in the Housing Choice Voucher program (formerly known as Section 8) is mutually beneficial.
The participant benefits by finding quality affordable housing in Bergen County. The landlord benefits by receiving monthly Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) through direct deposit from the Housing Authority of Bergen County.
Here are a few other benefits of renting to a family with a Housing Choice Voucher.
- You will be afforded an opportunity to list your property using the free online listing service Affordable Housing, which is administered by an independent company not affiliated with the Housing Authority of Bergen County.
- Pre-screened tenants – all families are subject to a criminal background check. However, landlords are strongly encouraged to screen participants as they would an unassisted tenant.
- You are protected from financial loss if the participant suffers unexpected financial hardship. Once the participant reports a change in income along with all supporting documentation, the HABC will conduct a reexamination of the households income. Once verified, the subsidy payment is increased to compensate for the participant’s decrease in income.
