Everyone Wins With the Housing Choice Voucher Program!

  • Low income families find quality homes with affordable rent.
  • Owners fill vacant units with tenants under an initial one-year contract. Since the tenants' rents are affordable, there is less likelihood that the owner will need to evict participants for non-payment of rent.
  • The local economy is helped by the infusion of money into the community.
Allow the Housing Authority to assist you in marketing your rentals!

The Housing Authority maintains a list of landlords who are willing to accept Housing Choice Voucher Participants. The referral list is provided to individuals and families who receive Housing Choice Vouchers. If you would like to be listed on the referral list, call (559) 582-3120.

Owner Responsibilities:


The Housing Authority does not screen participants for suitability as renters. Owners should perform their normal landlord reference checks, credit reviews, etc. The Housing Authority can supply owners with the current and previous applicant address and landlord information if known.


The landlord must comply with fair housing laws and not discriminate against any family.

Unit Maintenance

The rental unit must be maintained in decent, safe, and sanitary condition. Repairs must be made in a timely manner. For more information about inspections, click here.

Lease Enforcement

The owner manages his/her own property. He/she collects the rent due from the tenant and enforces compliance with the lease. During the first year of the lease, the owner may terminate tenancy only for good cause, such as non-payment of the tenant's share of the rent or other serious or repeated violations of the terms and conditions of the lease. At the end of the initial term of the lease, the landlord may decline to renew the contract without specifying a cause.

Compliance with the HAP Contract

The owner must comply with the terms of the Housing Assistance Payments Contract and cooperate with the Housing Authority.
