Housing Locator Summit Part II: Innovations in Landlord Incentives

Presented on September 20, 2023

Why does landlord engagement matter?

With an unprecedented tight rental housing market, we need to expand and improve the strategies that can work to bring private landlords to table and accept rental assistance programs like Rapid Rehousing, Permanent Supportive Housing and Housing Choice Vouchers, especially when the client has a not so great history.

Join us as we continue the conversation started with the Housing Locator Summit last month. We will take a deeper dive into landlord engagement models from across Pennsylvania and the landlord incentives they implemented to help connect families overcoming homelessness to a place of their own.
