Landlord's Benefits Program

The Landlord Benefits Program has Ended.


The Housing Authority of the County of Butte is pleased to announce that due to the huge success of the landlord incentive program, all funds have been exhausted and the program has ended.

Since the program began in September, we have distributed over 300 bonus checks and approximately 25 landlords signed on for the first time under the Section 8 program.

We are so grateful to all of our landlords and look forward to a future of working together to provide safe, decent and sanitary housing to our local low income residents.

Partnering with HACB has its Benefits

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program in Butte and Glenn counties has been impacted by leasing difficulties as a result of COVID-19 along with a very limited housing inventory. In response to market conditions, the Housing Authority of the County of Butte (HACB) has implemented the Owner Benefits Program.

The HCV (Section 8) program has some incredible benefits for property owners, and joining the program is a simple process that can help prevent homelessness and ensure that Butte County and Glenn County remains economically diverse.

The goals of the Owner Benefits Program are:

  1. to support existing owners and recruit new owners to the Section 8 program;
  2. to increase the number of units available for families to rent within Butte County and Glenn County;
  3. to increase the lease-up success rates for vouchers issued; and
  4. to increase the overall voucher utilization rate for the HACB.

The Owner Benefits Program is:

Signing Bonus
This is a bonus of $500 for existing landlords payable upon the execution of each new Housing Choice Voucher Housing Assistance Payment contract. (lease renewals not eligible)

New Landlord Bonus
This is a one-time bonus of $1,000 for a new landlord who has not participated as a landlord in the HCV program in the last 12 months.

With over 200 families searching right now for housing in our area, you can make a difference.

The Landlord Incentive Payments will be paid with the first Housing Assistance Payment deposit after the execution of each new HAP contract.

The Owner Benefits Program will be available through June 30, 2021 or until budgeted funds are exhausted.
