HACLA Hosts Second HouseLA Landlord Engagement Event



Los AngelesOn Saturday, April 6th, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) hosted a presentation on incentives available to property owners who are willing to rent to individuals and families who have experienced homelessness. Held at HACLA’s Headquarters at 2600 Wilshire Boulevard, the event was well attended by prospective property owners and guests who had an opportunity to hear about the successes of the Homeless Incentive Program (HIP). With HUD’s recent approval of higher Voucher Payment Standards (VPS), HACLA’s maximum rents have reached a historic high and at market rate, a one-bedroom voucher payment can go up to $2,400/month. Additional benefits and financial incentives to property owners who participate in the Program include security deposit assistance and holding fees, where landlords can receive up to one month's rent per vacant unit held, based on the number of bedrooms and current Fair Market Rents (FMR), move-in assistance, and damage mitigation.

HACLA Section 8 staff gave presentations on the HIP program and its incentives, followed by a landlord testimony on the success of the program. Inspections were scheduled on the spot and HACLA received many interest cards, where owners indicated a total of 184 available rental units ready to be listed by HACLA.

“We found great success when we hosted this event last year and we’re so grateful to see that trend continue as we form more partnerships with property owners in Los Angeles,” said HACLA President and CEO Doug Guthrie. “We hope to continue hosting events like this as we spread the word about this program to property owners who may be willing but unaware of its great incentives and benefits.”
