Request for Tenancy Approvals (RTA's)
RTA Instructional VideoSubmitting a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA) packet is an essential step in approving a unit to receive rental assistance. The RTA provides the information HADC staff needs to determine if the requested rent is affordable and reasonable, and to schedule an inspection. If the RTA is received incomplete or the unit is not inspection ready, it causes delays in processing. The more families and landlords know about the RTA, the more likely they are to avoid these delays.

RTA Instructional Video
To help families and landlords learn more about the RTA process, HADC staff created a video – Navigating the Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA). The video details how to complete and submit an RTA, and answers frequently asked questions. Link here to access the RTA video or go to https://youtu.be/DmEA5XDHkb8.
