Small Rental Property Program

Program Description

The Small Rental Property Program (SRPP) is federally-funded program administered by the Louisiana Housing Corporation. It was implemented to provide assistance to landlord applicants renting residential properties to income-eligible tenants.

The program allows for short-term leases for residents displaced due to Hurricanes Katrina & Rita.

Tenant Selection

Tenant selection processes must be consistent with a number of fair housing requirements. Specifically, the tenant selection criteria, income certification process and application forms must:

  • Be consistent with the purpose of providing housing for low and moderate-income families (families earning at or below 80% of area median income).
  • Be reasonably related to program eligibility criteria and an applicant's ability to perform the obligations of the lease.
  • Not “discriminate or segregate in the use, enjoyment, occupancy, conveyance, lease, sublease, or rental of units on the basis of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, sexual preference, age, marital status, family status, source of income, physical or mental disability, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) or AIDS-related conditions (ARC), or any other arbitrary basis.”
  • Use Fair Housing and Accessibility logos and language on applications, advertisements, and other outreach materials, and prominently display the address of the physical location where applications are accepted.
