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.
