HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program provides rental assistance to very low-income households in the private market and is an essential tool for supporting housing stability. However, many landlords have negative experiences with the program, discouraging them from accepting vouchers and limiting the impact of federal dollars. Improving landlord participation is a priority for HUD, as outlined in the Administration’s recently released budget proposal, and the agency has undertaken multiple efforts to enhance landlords’ experience with the program.
In this webinar, BPC will host senior HUD officials for a presentation on the various challenges to landlord acceptance of vouchers as well as agency initiatives to overcome those hurdles, followed by a discussion exploring the future of landlord participation in the program.
