The Tulsa Housing Authority (THA) has opened the waitlist for Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers today! This means that more households will be receiving vouchers and looking for units to rent. By accepting a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, landlords will receive rental income that is paid directly to them by THA.
THA currently has additional programs for tenants and landlords. Tenants can receive security deposit assistance of up to $500 on a first come, first serve basis. Landlords who are new to the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program can receive incentive bonuses of up to $5,000!
A $1,000 incentive bonus will be given for the first five new housing units that a landlord rents to families with a Housing Choice Voucher on a first come, first served basis while funds are available. The bonus cannot exceed $5,000 per new landlord. To be eligible for this incentive bonus, the landlord must not have received a subsidy from the THA Housing Choice Voucher program in the last 12 months.
