Landlord Information

Private property owners and rental managers play a crucial role in the working of the Housing Choice Voucher program. The core of the HCV program is the public-private partnership that enables low-income renters to seek decent, safe, quality housing, outside of high-poverty areas, while providing landlords with fair and reliable payment for their services.

As of December 27, 2022, HQS regulations require Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors in all HUD-assisted housing. Detectors are required in the utility area and just outside of sleeping areas for all units with fuel-burning utilities. For more information, please see the language of the HUD Notice released on February 1.

Visit DelawareHousingSearch.Org to List Your Unit

NCCHA is also, as of February 2023, re-establishing its own internal listing of available units. Landlords should email info about available units (including address, # of bedrooms, requested rent amount and contact info) to [email protected].

Prospective and Present HCV Landlords:

NCCHA regularly holds public sessions for current and new landlords to meet and greet each other, and to learn more about the program from our staff as well as experts we bring in. Generally held in the Gilliam Multi-Purpose Conference Room at 67 Reads Way, New Castle, these bi-annual meetings are a very valuable resource.

Landlord meetings present a chance for property owners to meet and talk to us and each other. And of course, at each meeting, we discuss various topics related to renting with the program and answer your specific questions regarding the details of participation in the program for property owners.

The entire NCCHA Landlord Packet, including all forms and info provided during our Landlord Briefings and everything needed to learn about HCV and get signed up, can now be downloaded as .zip file here.

Our next landlord meeting date will be posted here once scheduled.
