Become a Landlord
Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) is recruiting property owners with rental properties in all areas of the City of Fort Worth to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher program.
This program has the same obligations and restrictions as renting under the private, unassisted market. The biggest difference is the HQS inspection requirements and the HUD lease addendum that must be attached to the property owner’s lease.
We are also asking potential landlords to consider our TAKE ONE program. If you have vacant units and have not considered working with the agency in the past, we are asking you to test the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program or Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program by leasing to just one family or veteran in need of stable housing. The agency has begun this campaign because of the difficulties our families and veterans are having with locating an apartment in Tarrant County because of the tight rental market.
FWHS holds new property owner orientation meetings at 9:00 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month in its Administrative Office at 1201 E. 13th Street in the Auditorium. Attendance at the orientation is mandatory to participate in FWHS assistance programs and will explain guidelines and required paperwork.
