A popular program with MaineHousing has received additional funding that will allow  landlords to continue provide affordable housing according to a report by WABI.

Maine’s “HOME fund” is providing a guarantee of additional funding, up to $750,000 that will now be available for the Landlord Incentive Program, otherwise known as MaineHousing’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, or HCV.

This program provides direct payments to landlords, who would receive up to $750 for every rental unit they place in the Housing Choice Voucher program.

During the last 12 months, over 350 units were added across the state and made available for HCV tenants according to the report.

The Housing Choice Voucher program is very robust in it’s offerings, and also flexible as it also covers security deposits, as well as repairs.

MaineHousing offers several programs ranging from Emergency Rental Assistance, to Fuel Assistance, to First Time Home Buyers, and even Low Income Housing Tax Credit programs.

More information about all the programs, qualification guidelines, and how to participate in any of MaineHousing programs, can be found at the MaineHousing Website.

A staggering estate listed as "America's most expensive home" is currently listed for sale in Bel Air, Calif., for $295 million, and pictures show a one-of-a-kind home that's almost impossibly elaborate and massive. The 100,000-square-foot, 29-bedroom, 41-bathroom home will be the most expensive private residence sale in the U.S. if it brings that price, and that price tag comes with every conceivable amenity, including a private nightclub, full-service beauty salon, wellness spa, 10,000-square-foot sky deck, 400-foot glass-walled outdoor running track with a view of the city and a private movie theater with seating for more than 40 people.
