Equal Housing Opportunity

Caribou Housing Agency partners with more than 100 private property owners to provide affordable housing in the City of Caribou and surrounding communities.  A landlord is free to lawfully screen housing choice voucher applicants on the same basis other applicants are screened. If a landlord accepts the applicant as a tenant, the rent meets the HCV program guidelines, and the unit passes inspection, rental assistance can begin.  No long-term commitment on the part of tenant or landlord exists past the end of the lease.

Tenants are responsible for paying approximately 30% of their income for rent and utilities.  The difference between what tenants are required to pay and the actual rent is paid monthly by the Housing Choice Voucher program directly to landlords.   Landlords can have a good expectation of payment even when renting to low- and moderate-income tenants.

Landlords interested in working with clients who have a voucher through the Caribou Housing Agency may complete and submit the leasing packet issued to the Housing Agency participant. The landlord must ensure the participant is an active client by checking the dates on the participant’s voucher.
