As more and more communities move away from institutionalization and facility based housing programs and toward permanent housing opportunities in their communities, the need for landlords willing to rent to individuals participating in programs is growing. This session will help you to develop a landlord outreach initiative in your community by discussing efforts undertaken in Erie and Pittsburgh to not only reach out to landlords, but incentivize them to participate. You will learn what landlords value and the best tips to bring them in as partners in your work.
