Prospective and current landlords are invited to attend any or all of these meetings to learn more about working with the Houston Housing Authority. Staff members will provide an overview of the HHA program and go through the steps to lease to a Housing Choice Voucher Program participant. Topics covered include:

  • Finding a tenant
  • Approving a tenant
  • Submitting a leasing packet
  • Going through inspections
  • Approving a reasonable rent
  • Contracting and leasing
  • Receiving payment

These meetings are a great way to understand how the Housing Authority programs work to assist clients and pays rent subsidies on their behalf. Tips are given on how to find great tenants, keep your property leased, and better understand how this partnership works.

There are many benefits to participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program as a property owner/landlord including:

  • Free advertising of available units
  • Guaranteed rent checks the first of each month
  • Annual inspections
  • Market rents
  • And knowing you've helped to provide affordable housing to Houston families.
