As part of the community’s efforts to eliminate homelessness, a Rapid Rehousing approach is being used more and more to quickly move households from homelessness to stable permanent housing. The Rapid Rehousing Partnership Program provides the needed support for both the households moving into permanent housing and the landlords who are renting units for our clients. This new workshop offering is aimed at providing landlords and property managers with the information needed to have positive working relationships and experiences with the Department of Human Services, our Rapid Rehousing Program and their tenants.

Topics to be included in this workshop are:

Rapid Rehousing Supports for Landlords and Tenants

Renting to Temporary Assistance Clients

Landlord Statements

Direct Rent Payments

Property Violations

The Landlord Tenant Security Agreement and Improvements in Claims Process

Participation in the session is limited to 25 participants. Additional offering of this workshop will be scheduled on a regular basis. To register for the May 7th session, please complete the registration form and return via fax or e-mail to:
