SEEKING NEW LANDLORDS PARTICIPATION IN THE HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (HCV) PROGRAM

You will get timely and dependable payments from the Manatee County Housing Authority. Participating, compliant landlords will receive timely and dependable housing assistance payments (HAP) each month once the HAP contract and lease are signed.

You will get your full rental payment. When a HCV tenant’s income permanently changes, the portion of rent paid by the PHA and the tenant is adjusted to reflect this change. This provides financial protection to landlords in that if a HCV tenant’s income decreases, there is a process for the PHA to pay a larger portion of the rent to the landlord so the landlord continues to receive a full rental payment.

You will receive regular inspections. Some landlords appreciate the routine inspections because they provide an opportunity to check on the condition of the unit. This can result in identifying maintenance needs that may have otherwise gone unnoticed for some time. Landlords that own or manage properties across wide geographies in particular tend to appreciate the value in having a routine, objective inspection of their rental units.

You may request annual reasonable rent increases. Compliant landlords may request a rent increase at the annual anniversary of the HAP contract by written notice to the PHA.

You have the opportunity to help low-income elderly, disabled, and veteran households, as well as families with children by providing affordable housing. More than 50 percent of vouchers serve elderly or non-elderly disabled families. About 45 percent of vouchers assist single-parent families.

HUD’s Small Area Fair Market Rent (SAFMR)

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has designated multiple metropolitan areas subject to the mandatory use of HUD’s Small Area Fair Market Rent (SAFMR) final rule. Manatee County Housing Authority (MCHA) is in a metropolitan area and mandated to implement SAFMR’s.

The SAFMR’s are Fair Market Rents (FMRs) calculated at the area Zip Code level, rather than for entire metropolitan region. MCHA is integrating HUD’s new SAFMR requirement, and it requires important changes in the way MCHA operates the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program.
