PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg Public Housing Authority has launched a new landlord incentive program aimed at increasing affordable housing options for families in Pittsburg.
The program reimburses landlords participating in the Section 8 Rental Assistance program for eligible repairs up to $1,000 per unit. This new program is made possible thanks to grant funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
To be eligible to submit a reimbursement claim for repairs, a landlord must be currently participating in or willing to participate in the Section 8 Rental Assistance program, the unit must be leased to an approved tenant, and the landlord must continue to allow placement of the tenant in the same unit. Landlords must provide a building permit and proof of inspections of work performed by a licensed contractor. The landlord must also agree to participate in the Section 8 Rental Assistance program for one full year.
The City of Pittsburg recognizes the investment of property owners willing to help individuals who need affordable housing. To learn more, call (620) 232-1210.
