On April 20, 2021, the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) launched the San Gabriel Valley Landlord Incentives Program (SGVLIP), which provides benefits and support to landlords who lease their units to tenants receiving rental assistance to leave homelessness. In addition to financial benefits, landlords receive a point of contact who can mediate any issues or provide the funds to resolve the issues.
Any landlord with a unit in the Cities of Alhambra, Arcadia, Azusa, Baldwin Park, Claremont, Covina, Diamond Bar, Duarte, El Monte, Glendora, Irwindale, La Verne, Monrovia, Montebello, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Dimas, San Gabriel, South El Monte, or West Covina can participate in the Program. Landlords with units outside of the stated jurisdictions may still be eligible to participate. Participating landlords will receive steady and reliable rent checks each month, either from the County of Los Angeles or nonprofits who are paid by the County. A small portion of the rent may also be paid directly by the tenants, based on the amount they can afford.
The Program is managed by the Union Station Homeless Services (USHS), in partnership with the SGVCOG. To learn more about the San Gabriel Valley Landlord Incentives Program, please visit https://landlordincentives.org/.
