The Wichita Housing Authority Landlord
Incentive Project (WHALIP) helps landlords
support City efforts to provide safe, affordable
housing for individuals and families receiving housing assistance. WHALIP provides landlords with additional
support when leasing to assisted tenants who are
participating with WHA programs. WHALIP
provides supplementary funds to mitigate potential
economic losses that might arise from damages or
unfulfilled leases related to serving individuals and
families during the initial term of the lease.
As a landlord, if you agree to accept referred
tenants from our list of selected providers,
WHALIP will provide the following, within the
guidelines of the program:
- $1,000 New Landlord Bonus - A one time
bonus for a landlord that is new to the
program, to be paid after successful lease up
of the first new tenant.
- $500 Returning Landlord Bonus - A one
time bonus for a landlord that has previously
been on the program but stopped accepting
new S8 tenants, for a period of at least 6
months, to be paid after successful lease up of
the first new tenant.
- $250 New Tenant Lease Up Bonus - A $250
bonus for each tenant that a Landlord leases
up above their baseline count that will be
taken on 11/30/22.
- Within the first 12 months of tenancy, cover up
to $2,000 in damages or deductibles for a 0BR
or 1BR, and $3,500 for 2+BR applicable after
applying security deposit.
- Provide up to 2x Monthly rent to cover a
lost rent due to eviction, abandonment, or
other premature termination of the
lease during the initial term, if the landlord
commits to leasing to another HCV tenant
