The Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Program has implemented an electronic application for program assistance. Hard copies of the applications are no longer accepted. This program has struggled with outdated applications being distributed, so an electronic version not only streamlines our process, but allows for the most current version of the application to always be used.
You can find our application at the following link:
This form is for HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) landlords seeking reimbursement for unpaid rent and damages incurred by past Housing Choice voucher tenants who began occupancy after July 1, 2014. Landlords must first obtain a Small Claim judgment in their local circuit or justice court before applying to this program. The information in this form is required to be submitted to Oregon Housing and Community Services.
Supporting documentation may be attached through the use of this application or landlords may choose to mail the supporting documentation to Oregon Housing and Community Services; Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee, 725 Summer St. NE, Ste B, Salem, OR, 97301.
Applications are for reimbursement and are limited to amounts in excess of $500 and less than $5,000.
An application is not complete until this form is completed and all supporting documentation is included either with this application or by separate mailing.
Funding for this program is limited and is dependent upon state budget allocation. If the program depletes of funds before receipt of any new allocation, landlords will be notified in writing and applications received by OHCS will be retained. If new funds are received, applications will be processed in the order that they were received. There is no guarantee that new funds will be made available.
If you have questions, you may contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-453-5511 option 8.
