Rental Property Owners & Managers

Are you interested in becoming a landlord to Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) participants? Rental property owners in Dakota County can participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (also known as Section 8) by providing affordable, safe and adequate housing for Voucher Program participants.

The process of renting to a Housing Choice Voucher Program participant is similar to renting to a family in the private market. You are still able to screen and select your tenants for credit, criminal and rental history. You will also collect the full amount of rent and continue to maintain your property.

The goal of the Housing Choice Voucher Program is to offer expanded housing opportunities to low income individuals or families by subsidizing rents for units in the private rental market. This enables Housing Choice Voucher participants to rent all housing types throughout Dakota County.

Thank you for your continued support and participation in the Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance program. Your participation by providing affordable housing through this program is key to its success in Dakota County.
