Housing Choice Voucher Program Benefits
Low Vacancy Rates: Because Housing Choice Participants are always looking for good, affordable housing, a Housing Choice Landlord rarely has a vacant property.
Good Renters: PCHA conducts extensive background checks (including criminal history screening) on Housing Choice applicants and participants. Landlords can create their own selection criteria, too. A participating landlord is not required to rent to a household who does not meet their eligibility requirements.
Well-Maintained Housing: PCHA conducts an initial property inspection and follow-up annual inspections. Along with the property owner’s periodic checks, these inspections ensure that properties are maintained well.
Guaranteed Rent: Most Housing Choice participants have a financial safety net if they experience a loss of income. In those instances, PCHA normally increases its portion of the rent subsidy.
Direct Deposit: Housing Choice property owners receive their rental payments on time, every month, via direct deposit.
