Become a Member
Submit a Landlord Interest & Rental Criteria Form and a Suncoast Housing Collaboration (SHC) staff member will reach out to schedule a short, personalized orientation on accessing member benefits and how to start receiving tenant referrals. During the orientation, you, as the property owner/manager will determine which specific screening criteria you will adjust for clients served by the SHC. A membership agreement will be signed and you will receive a welcome packet that can be shared with relevant staff members.
List Properties with the SHC
During the orientation, you will confirm property information to be posted internally for service provider members to access as they help their clients find housing. Current availability will be provided twice monthly to the SHC, but there may be periodic check-ins for specific cases. A list of SHC Service Providers will be provided to the landlord/property owner with a point of contact to promote clarity and communication. If an SHC service provider helps their client apply, the landlord/property owner knows this tenant comes with the benefits of the SHC.
Receive Screened Applicant Referrals
Based on the provided screening criteria, service providers will help their clients find properties that fit an individual or family’s needs and background. Service provider Housing Navigators and Case Managers will help submit applications with the expectation that property landlords/managers will apply flexible screening criteria in accordance with the SHC membership agreement. In case of excessive damages or lost rent, landlords/property managers can file a claim directly through the Landlord Mitigation Fund.
