Landlord Engagement Program

The City of Temple Landlord Engagement Program (LEP) is designed to encourage local landlords/agencies to rent decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing to income-eligible individuals experiencing homelessness. Participating landlords will be asked to prioritize leasing access to eligible participants, rapid approval or denial of applications, the use of flexible identification requirements, waiver of rental history requirements, and leniency of tenant background criteria. In exchange for these allowances, the City of Temple's Landlord Engagement Specialist will work with you, the client and their Case Manager to make sure they are a good tenant and your interests are protected.
