The Rent Guarantee Program (RGP) provides incentives and financial assistance to landlords that rent or lease to low-income households that complete tenant readiness education by guaranteeing payments to landlords for unpaid rent and for eviction and property damage costs. RGP is funded through the legislatively approved state general funds.
Landlords who have had a tenant vacate or has been evicted due to non-compliance of a lease/rental agreement within the first 12 months of occupancy may submit a request for reimbursement for unpaid rent and damages that exceed the tenant’s security deposit and up to the limit of the Rent Guarantee amount.
The maximum Rent Guarantee amount available is $2,000 for unpaid rent and total financial assistance paid under the program to a landlord is limited to a maximum of $5,000 per landlord.
Payment of financial assistance is contingent on the landlord’s submission of a complete and accurate reimbursement request within 30 days of the date the tenant vacates the dwelling or is evicted, and upon verification of damages by the Program Provider and available funding.
Damages may include:
