Cumberland County Landlord Incentive Program


The Cumberland County Housing Authority believes that everyone deserves a place to call home. Quality affordable housing is critical to a healthy community and economy. Landlords are key to helping our communities prosper. To acknowledge a landlord’s investment in helping creating housing opportunities, the Authority is launching the Landlord Incentive Program. Participating landlords will receive reimbursement for short-term vacancies and minor unit repairs when they rent their unit to a renter with a housing voucher or in need of Emergency Shelter.
