For a detailed overview of the program, please view our ... LANDLORD INFORMATION GUIDANCE
Even though a family is determined by the Housing Authority of Henry County to be eligible for the program, the owner must approve the family as a suitable renter. The HAHC knows that the owner has approved the family when a Request for Tenancy Approval (RFTA) form and Packet is submitted to our office. A tenant that is eligible to move will have this packet available for the owner.
After a family finds a suitable unit and the owner approves the tenant, the HAHC needs to perform a Housing Quality Standards_(HQS) inspection. If the unit does not pass inspection, a reasonable time will be given to make the required repairs, if applicable. A Good Place booklet is a good resource of items we look for.
Once a unit passes the HQS inspection and meets program requirements, the tenancy can be approved. The owner and tenant will then enter into a lease together and the HAHC will enter into a Housing. Assistance Payments (HAP) contract with the owner. After the HAP contract and lease are signed the HAHC will make payments to the owner as long as the family continues to meet eligibility criteria and the housing unit qualifies under the program regulations.
If you are interested in listing your units, the HAHC will provide to the HCV families with owner names and general information about the available rental unit(s). Any interested families will then contact you for an appointment to see your housing unit(s). The Housing Authority of Henry County does not steer families to specific owners or rental units, but we will provide families with information on units that are available.
