From The Columbian:
The Vancouver Housing Authority is launching a rent buy-down program to make more rentals available to low-income households in Clark County.
Through the program announced this week, the VHA will provide a subsidy to participating landlords that reduces the tenant’s portion of rent, making the rent more affordable.
Tenants will receive assistance for a minimum of two years.
Potential program participants will first be drawn from VHA’s existing waitlist. Owners or developers will determine whether tenants are eligible for the program based on the income limits.
