Landlord Liaison Project
The Landlord Liaison Project (LLP) addresses the critical need of finding affordable housing for clients of Matt Talbot who are given a high priority on the city-wide housing list. We can not take calls from the public to assist in finding housing. We use the coordinated entry system to determine who our housing clients will be and only take on new clients if there are openings. Through this project Matt Talbot staff build constructive relationships with landlords to facilitate rapidly locating stable and safe permanent housing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
Who is Eligible for the Landlord Liaison Project?
Only people who already have a housing voucher or other income from employment, Social Security or Disability are eligible. We do not provide housing or housing vouchers to anyone who is not coming from the coordinated entry list.
How Can Landlords Get Involved?
Successful collaborations with landlords are a key part of ending homelessness in Lincoln. Our outreach for this project is to landlords and property managers who are willing to help house those experiencing homelessness. Currently 54 landlords/property managers have partnered with the LLP by leasing housing units to LLP clients who have a permanent source of rental income and are receiving ongoing case management from a local human services agency. Any landlord concerns that arise are responded to within 24 - 48 hours. To learn more, please contact Alynn Sampson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
