Landlords

A special Housing Choice (Section 8) rental assistance program that specifically helps homeless veterans and their families is now available.   The program – Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) – provides permanent housing subsidies and case management, clinical and supportive services to homeless veterans with significant case management needs. The VA screens homeless veterans for program eligibility, determines that participating veterans are medically stabilized, and provides case management services to enrollees.  

As a landlord participating in the VASH program, many benefits and safeguards are offered:

  • Participants enrolled in the VASH program have different levels of needs.  Bay Pines VASH staff and the Pinellas County Housing Authority will work with you to match you with a tenant you’re comfortable with.
  • You can help keep up your occupancy rate by participating in this program. Additionally, you can be assured that rent will be paid in a timely manner and that you have a stable income stream.
  • Your participation is an investment in ending homelessness in Pinellas County.

 

Free Landlord Workshops

PCHA hosts free landlord workshops regularly to introduce interested area landlords to the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. In excess of $35 million in housing assistance payments, made through the HCV program, is put directly into the Pinellas County economy annually.
