In an effort to assist our community partners specializing in homeless housing services and the people that they serve, the City of Morgantown has launched the Landlord Incentive Program for Homeless Individuals, or LIP. The LIP can get people off the streets, out of shelters and into a place to call home.
In 2020, the city completed a housing study that showed a lack of available housing options for very low and low-income renter households. The lack of available housing serving these lower income households can contribute to renters living in substandard units, being in a cost burdened housing situation, or even possibly becoming homeless again.
The LIP offers landlords the following incentives:
For landlords to be eligible for the LIP they must meet the following requirements:
The City of Morgantown encourages all landlords that are interested in participating in the program to contact the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness at 304-476-4717 and/or Bartlett Housing Solutions at 304-282-2278.
While the LIP is funded by the city, our community partners, non-profits, and social service agencies will help implement the program. All landlords will work directly with the West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness and/or Bartlett Housing Solutions.
