Landlord Guarantee Assistance & Advisory CommitteeHousing Choice Landlord Guarantee Assistance Program
Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) was directed by the 77th Oregon Legislative Assembly to both: develop and implement the Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Program, and convene a Housing Choice Advisory Committee.
The Housing Choice Advisory Committee is made up of representatives of landlords, tenants, and public housing authorities. It advises the Department with respect to the Housing Choice Voucher Program; it discusses best practices for maximizing participation by landlords and tenants; it develops strategies and measures for gauging effectiveness of the program; and it monitors the Landlord Guarantee Fund.
The Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Program is designed to provide financial assistance to landlords to mitigate damages caused by tenants as a result of their occupancy under the HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program, also known as Section 8.
