The Landlord Engagement and Assistance Program (LEAP) provides incentives for landlords with rental housing units in the City of San Diego who rent to San Diegans experiencing homelessness.

Incentives for landlords include:

  • $500 for the first unit landlords rent to a homeless household and $250 for each additional unit
  • Up to two times the contract rent in security deposits and an average of $100 in utility assistance per household
  • A contingency fund to help landlords cover expenses, such as repairs that exceed security deposits
  • Dedicated San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) housing specialists to answer landlords’ questions

LEAP is part of HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO, SDHC’s homelessness action plan, which has created more 9,300 housing solutions in five and a half years for San Diegans experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
