Implement a centralized Landlord Liaison Program (LLP)
Homeless Plan 2023


Affordable rental housing options in Nevada County are limited and those who have been homeless or are at risk of homelessness have challenges that require additional support to landlords that rent to them. The Landlord Liaison Program aims to bridge that gap.

Progress Update

Q3 updates:

  • Currently two housing navigators work with the Housing Resource Team (HRT) to coordinate acquiring subsidies and connecting subsidies to landlords. The program needs work on mediation and the rapid response process for landlords.
  • All 30 Housing Choice Vouchers have been utilized. Many went to Empire Mine Courtyard and prevented homelessness.  AMI and our CalWORKs Team have utilized vouchers whenever possible.
  • Partnering with Regional Housing Authority (RHA) and the Continuum of Care (CoC) to preserve vouchers within the community has been highly successful. Nevada County maintains high performance across the region and in the state for preserving vouchers in the community.

Next Steps

  • Develop a mediation and rapid response process for landlords participating in the Landlord Liaison Program.
