Landlord Liaison Program

LLP is a program committed to increasing access to affordable housing for the Pierce County Homeless System by connecting Tenants with housing opportunities provided by property owners & managers (property partners). The program serves Property Partners in all of Pierce County who provide affordable housing and supplements Pierce County funded Rapid Rehousing programs & case managers by increasing their access (as provided by Property Partners).

We request that Landlords use relaxed screening criteria to house people with barriers such as evictions, poor credit and low income, in order to access our risk mitigation funds.
