Let’s Stop Rewarding Landlords for Discrimination! Share YOUR Story!
Good Landlord Program
“Good Landlord Programs” are city-level programs that offer financial incentives for landlords and property owners to participate in trainings and comply with requirements such as: checking the criminal background of any potential tenant; prohibiting individuals with a criminal record within the last four years from living in a rental property; and evicting any individual (as well as family members) should an arrest occur. This makes it extremely difficult for ex-inmates to reintegrate back into society, and often contributes to recidivism.
Help the ACLU reform these restrictive Good Landlord Programs in Utah by sharing YOUR story. ACLU of Utah has spoken in support of HB441 for example, advocating for such reforms.
