Maine landlords are key to addressing our state’s affordable housing needs. That’s why Bath Housing is working with MaineHousing and the Maine Association of Public Housing Directors (MAPHD) to encourage landlords across the state to become part of our network of property owners who rent to Housing Choice Voucher participants. The incentive programs include a $750 signing bonus for each newly-leased HCV tenant, repair grants, and damage reimbursements. The program also pays HCV tenant security deposits.
About Housing Choice Vouchers
The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program provides rental assistance to income-eligible tenants by paying a portion of their monthly rent and utilities directly to their landlord. Landlords who rent to HCV participants help people in their communities find good homes. HCV landlords are also protected from financial hardship. Public housing authorities, which administer separate HCV programs across the state, pay a monthly portion of the HCV participant’s rent. If the HCV participant loses their income, the housing authority steps in to pay the rest.
