Get an Incentive Up to $700 for Each New Unit Leased to an HCV Family

Beginning September 1, 2020, Memphis Housing Authority (MHA), through CARES Act funding, is offering incentive payments to new and current owners to lease a new unit to qualified voucher holders.   Owner incentive payments are being offered to encourage owner participation in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) and increase the supply of quality affordable housing in Shelby County, TN.

Owners who submit a Request for Tenancy Approval for new units and lease and execute a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) for the new unit with the HCV program will be eligible for an owner incentive payment, up to $700 per unit.   Owner incentive payments are available only for new move-ins, effective September 1, 2020 and continue through October 31, 2021 or until the funding is exhausted.  Owners that lease a new unit to a regular voucher holder receive $500.  Owners that lease a new unit to a Special Purpose Voucher holder or a regular voucher in an Opportunity area receive $700.
