Landlords with tenants who may qualify for CHAP can be entered as a vendor in advance. Landlords who are already entered into our system do not need to resubmit the below documentation. Landlords who are not already in the NRHA system should:

Once we have a landlord’s information on file, they will receive a registration letter to access the online landlord portal. Landlords can also review the Landlord Resources page, which has details about how rental assistance works through NRHA.

If you would like to work with your tenant to fast track assistance, you can submit an application on behalf of the household.  Please note:

  • A user account for your tenant must be created here; the user account name will be the email associated with the account.
  • The tenant must be provided with the account name and password created at registration in order to stay informed of application status and to complete their next steps (the tenant must be involved in providing eligibility, release and verification documents).
  • Do not use your (the landlord’s) own email address; we recommend you work with your tenant to create a new email account if they do not have one, or obtain a current email address from your tenant.

Even if a landlord does not currently have a tenant needing assistance through this program, they may be entered as a vendor to streamline NRHA’s ability to process payment if and when the tenant need occurs.

IMPORTANT: Although landlords can submit applications on behalf of a tenant, after initial application is received, all further supporting eligibility, release and verification documents will be obtained directly from the tenant.
