New HCV Owner Liaison & Landlord Incentive

The Public Housing Agency has been exploring new initiatives to ensure landlord satisfaction in their HCV Programs, and we have a couple of exciting new developments for you.

We would like to introduced Chong Lao as the PHA’s new Owner Liaison. While she has been with us for a short time as an Assistant Manager, she has ten years of experience working with Housing Choice Voucher Programs, and is proficient in all areas from Inspections to Rent Setting to Conflict Resolution.  Moving forward, please contact her about any general questions or concerns you may have about the HCV program.  She looks forward to connecting with you all!

Also, for a limited time, the Saint Paul PHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program is offering a financial incentive to owners/landlords!  You will be eligible for this $500 bonus for every new lease you sign with one of our participants moving into your Saint Paul unit.  Owners/landlords who are new to the HCV/Section 8 Programs in St. Paul are eligible for an additional $500 lease-signing bonus!

Please see flyer below and share with other Saint Paul landlords!  If you have questions regarding this incentive, please feel free to contact Ross Wetternach at 651-292-6034 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
