Landlords

Are you tenants struggling to pay rent? Do you wish to expand your tenancy to additional populations? The programs below are designed to assist your efforts as a landlord and mitigate the risk involved in renting to higher-risk populations.

Landlord Database
 

We are currently building out a database of landlords that are willing to rent to individuals that have formerly been incarcerated or are in recovering from substance use disorders. Please submit the form below if you would like to be added to this database. Your contact information will only be distributed to participants of vetted programs, such as TBRA or LMRF.

“Housing is a major component of successful reentry"
- Grant County Probation Officer

Grant County is home to many individuals with incarceration records navigating the complicated process of “re-entry”. The term "re-entry" describes the process and challenges faced by the vast numbers of people released from prison and jail each year, such as drug/alcohol addiction, homelessness, unemployment, physical/mental impairment or illness, etc. Those that have formerly been incarcerated are more likely to have unique housing challenges.

In the 2018 report, “No Where to Go: Homelessness Amongst Formerly Incarcerated People,” the Prison Policy Initiative estimated that formerly incarcerated people are 10 times more likely to be homeless than the general public. At Affordable Housing Corporation, we believe that access to safe, stable, decent, and affordable housing is critical to reducing the likelihood of re-offending and promoting recovery from substance use disorders.

We are currently building out the Rental Housing for Formerly Incarcerated Persons Database. Please submit this form if you have successfully worked with a rental company or individual that is willing to rent to formerly incarcerated individuals and we will add them to the database.
