News & Events
The Caribou Housing Agency has moved! We are now located on the first floor of the Caribou Municipal Building.
If Caribou Housing Agency decides to terminate the contract with you or your landlord, both will be notified. In most cases, you have the right to request an informal hearing to dispute a termination decision.
By the Housing Agency
The Housing Authority may terminate your assistance when your income increases to the point that the assistance is not needed. It may also be terminated because you have not fulfilled program obligations. Caribou Housing Agency will terminate your assistance if:
You can terminate assistance at any time by voluntarily giving up your voucher. If this happens, the lease remains in effect, and you will be responsible for paying the entire rent amount. The terms of the Tenancy Addendum no longer apply if you stop participating in the program.
By the landlord
If you are evicted by your landlord, your assistance is terminated and the Housing Agency stops sending housing assistance payments to the landlord.
The landlord may evict a tenant who violates the lease, but any eviction must be done in accordance with the lease and state and local law. Landlords must send copies of any eviction notices to the Housing Authority at the same time they are sent to the tenant.
Termination of the landlord’s contract
The Housing Agency may stop making assistance payments to the landlord and terminate their contract if they breach their contract, violate the lease, or do not abide by other terms of the program.
