To increase rental opportunities for low-income families, the Community Housing Coalition is partnering with Northwestern Regional Housing Authority (NRHA) in hopes to reach unidentified landlords and share with them the benefits of renting property to Housing Choice Voucher tenants.

The Avery Journal reports that NRHA will hold a landlord event at the WAMY office in Spruce Pine, facilitated by Ned Fowler, Executive Director of NRHA.

It will be at 9:30 am Tuesday July 27.

There will be a presentation for landlords, informational material, and an opportunity to ask questions about becoming an HCV landlord.

The Housing Coalition is offering free nationwide tenant background checks for new landlords who participate in the HCV program.

There is no obligation, and refreshments will be provided.

The event will take place at 496-A Balsam Avenue, Spruce Pine.
