Tenant Selection

Homes for Good screens for program eligibility. Eligibility determinations are not the same as reference checks. Landlords renting to Section 8 tenants should perform all reference, background and credit checks used in selecting non-subsidized tenants.

If the prospective tenant is already a voucher holder, Homes for Good may provide, at the request of the prospective landlord, a limited amount of information. This may include the tenant’s current address and the name and address of the tenant’s current and prior landlords, if known to Homes for Good.

  • A Section 8 Voucher holder authorized to find a rental unit will give the landlord a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA) to complete.
  • Homes for Good will review the RTA, discuss the appropriate rent with the landlord, and schedule an inspection.
  • If the unit passes inspection and the rent is reasonable, Homes for Good will enter into a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contract. Until the HAP contract is signed, no payment will be made on behalf of the family.
  • Yearly HQS inspections are conducted to assure compliance with HUD regulations.
