We Encourage Landlords To Participate in Section 8

Greene Metropolitan’s Housing Choice Voucher Program serves approximately 1436 families throughout Greene County. The HCVP supports the typical leasing arrangement between a property owner and a renter, providing a monthly subsidy payment to the property owner on behalf of the renter to fill the gap between what the renter can afford to pay and the actual market rent amount. GMHA has guidelines that each property owner must adhere to as a participant in this program. The property owner is responsible for screening and approving potential residents, continuously maintaining quality housing, and enforcing the renter’s lease. GMHA’s staff will always be available to assist you with any questions.

Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority (GMHA), encourages landlords with property outside of lower-income neighborhoods to participate in the Section 8 Program.
