REGIONAL LONG-TERM RENT ASSISTANCE (RLRA) PROGRAM
REGIONAL LONG-TERM RENT ASSISTANCE (RLRA) PROGRAM
The Regional Long-Term Rentals Assistance (RLRA) program is a Permanent Supportive Housing rent subsidy for qualified low-income tenants and allows for private landlords to rent apartments and homes to qualified tenants at fair market rates. The program is similar to the federal Section 8 or Housing Choice Voucher program.

Home Forward will administer the funds to local Coordinated Entry programs and not directly to tenants.

Local Coordinated Entry programs will work with clients who are eligible and connect them to the Regional Long-Term Rentals Assistance (RLRA) program. This assistance is not immediate or stand-alone and is based on eligibility for specific coordinated access programs, participation and availability. You must be eligible for or part of one of the coordinated entry programs below to recieve one.
