RHC Connections with Landlords

RHC outreach to local landlords increases housing options in rural North Central PA

Developing the trust of landlords is an important way RHC’s increase housing options for many low income people with disabilities. The RHCs have a unique opportunity to dispel many of the misconceptions that landlords may have about renting to older adults and people with disabilities, thereby reducing the landlord’s anxiety around home modifications, reasonable accommodations, and housing choice vouchers.

NHT Collaborative Partners
