Managing all your responsibilities can seem daunting. PCHA has been listening to your requests and has developed a web portal to lighten your load. It will be easier to use, save you time and give you more information. Our new portal is called Assistance Connect. This new system allows you access to all your Housing Assistance Payments (HAPs) whether you have one unit or many units. If you wish to delegate responsibilities, then this system allows you to create many additional user accounts. In addition, we give you the ability to see your inspections, download important documents, update unit information and reschedule inspections. You only need 2 pieces of information to get started (Our PIN and your SSN or FEIN/TID). Click here to register and get started.

Helping Our Veterans
We offer a special Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance program that specifically helps homeless veterans and their families. The Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program provides permanent housing subsidies, case management, clinical services and supportive services to homeless veterans with significant case management needs. The VA screens homeless veterans for program eligibility, determines that participating veterans are medically stabilized, and provides case management services to enrollees.
Landlords that participate in the VASH program are offered many benefits and safeguards including:
- Participants enrolled in the VASH program have different levels of need. Bay Pines VASH staff and the Pinellas County Housing Authority will work with you to match you with the right tenant.
- You can help keep up your occupancy rate by participating in this program. Additionally, you can be assured that rent will be paid in a timely manner and that you have a stable income stream.
- Your participation is an investment in ending homelessness in Pinellas County.
Landlords interested in leasing their rental units to HUD-VASH Voucher participants may contact Patricia Kovack at (727) 398-6661 to obtain additional information about special lease-up procedures.
Free Landlord Workshops
We host free landlord workshops regularly to introduce interested area landlords to the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program. We pay over $35 million in housing assistance payments to landlords through this program. That’s millions injected directly into Pinellas County’s economy annually.
