Housing Incentive Fund

The F5 project is committed to providing housing to those who have demonstrated they deserve it.

F5 Housing 
Incentive Fund

The F5 Project has launched a Housing Incentive Fund to encourage property managers and landlords to rent to people experiencing re-entry barriers. The fund is a second chance for people with housing barriers to have stable housing.

The program is formal partnership between housing providers, F5 Project, and persons with barriers to housing.

Landlords who opt into the fund are covered for physical and operational costs of up to $2,000 for up to 6 months. The goal for this program is to take a chance on someone who normally wouldn’t be approved due to background and/or credit. We take a chance by cosigning, landlords take a chance by leasing. 

F5’s Housing Incentive Fund Advisory Board makes all acceptance and denial decisions. Participation requirements are listed below.

F5 Housing
Incentive Fund

Built in Support

The applications come from people who are currently in or graduating from the F5 Housing Program (live in an F5 House) 

F5 Project acts as a communication bridge between landlord and tenant. Once our particants completes our program, they submit an application to the fund advisory committee.

Once F5 approves the application, we engage the landlord and let them know we are willing to use the fund for the partipants. 

Landlord Protection

Landlords and property managers who agree to rent to people in the program can recoup funds lost due to unpaid rent or excessive damage to units. There is a process for reimbursment.
