A New Risk Mitigation Program Provides Additional Support for Landlords Who Rent to People Exiting Homelessness


New landlord incentive funding has launched across the Metro region. Funded by the Supportive Housing Services measure, this program, called the risk mitigation program, expands housing opportunities for people who have experienced chronic homelessness.

This new program will help increase access to apartments for those with the highest barriers to housing by providing reimbursements to landlords for eligible expenses such as excessive damages or unpaid rent for units that receive subsidies through the Regional Long-term Rent Assistance program.

The risk mitigation program is just one of the financial incentives available to landlords in the Metro area of Clackamas County. In addition, we are seeking landlords and housing providers to participate in Clackamas County’s Landlord Partnership Program. This program provides additional benefits including guaranteed rental income, sign-on bonuses, vacancy payments, additional funds for repairs, accessible staff specialists to support tenant success, and more.

For more information on Clackamas County’s Landlord Partnership Program and risk mitigation program, email rlralandlord@clackamas.us or call 503-347-7924. 

The risk mitigation program is administered by Housing Development Center. For more information about the risk mitigation program specifically, you may also visit www.hdc-nw.org/rlra-rmp.
