Why should landlords participate in HCVP?

Committed property owners and managers such as you provide valuable housing opportunities for qualified families. The participant benefits by finding quality affordable housing in the City of Baltimore

This briefing session is designed to provide you with an overview of the HCV program, with a focus on owner-related roles and responsibilities.

What are some 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 GoSection8.com, which is administered by an independent company not affiliated with HABC.
  • 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, HCVP will conduct a reexamination of the households income. Once verified, the subsidy payment is increased to compensate for the participant's decrease in income.

Working together, we can help provide quality housing opportunities to qualified families in Baltimore City!
