The Housing Authority of Maricopa County (HAMC) announced a $500 signing bonus for landlords in Maricopa County participating in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. Beginning October 1, 2020, Landlords will receive a $500 signing bonus for an executed Section 8 Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract within the Housing Authority of Maricopa County’s Jurisdiction. This bonus is subsidized with Federal CARES Act funding and is specifically for landlords in HAMC’s Jurisdiction who make their properties available to voucher holders. With the need for affordable housing for County Residents, this new signing bonus program will provide landlords a strong incentive to sign a Housing Assistance Payment contract, opening the door for stronger communities. The incentive will be available until the funds are exhausted. It is estimated that HAMC will be able to execute approximately 200 new contracts.
