LeaseUp is new program that helps landlords navigate the process of filling units with people in need of housing. LeaseUp partners property owners with housing non-profits. These organizations offer resources including incentives and case management expertise in matching homeless clients with appropriate housing, and continuing to work with formerly homeless renters. The LeaseUp program is operated with People Assisting The Homeless – PATH. How it works: landlords sign up via the website. Within a day, PATH staff contact landlords and orient them on the program. If a landlord opts to enroll their unit, non-profit staff inspect the site and provide a holding fee prior to client placement. Non-profit staff work with both clients and landlords to place people in appropriate units. When the homeless individual becomes the renter, non-profit case managers continue to support to ensure success. LeaseUp is funded at $3 million per year from Measure H, the 2017 county sales tax measure to end homelessness. The initiative is a scaled-up version of a successful pilot program operated by PATH.
