The Rental Assistance for Disabled Households (RADH) Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program provides Rental Assistance and/or Deposit Assistance for Low Income Households who want to rent from a private landlord (that is not a relative).  Under the RADH TBRA Program, participants are responsible for locating the rental unit they want to rent within Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Dubuque city limits.  Participants choose the type of housing they wish to rent (i.e. house, duplex, apartment).  The participant’s portion of the rent is a minimum of 30% of their adjusted monthly income.  AHNI pays the remainder of the contract rent to the private property landlord.

In order to qualify participants must meet admission guidelines for TBRA

  • TBRA participants must remain in rented unit for the initial one-year lease term (shorter lease terms are not permitted through RADH TBRA)
  • There is no provision to port-out of our jurisdiction under TBRA
  • If at any time the RADH TBRA participant’s income exceeds the income limit for their family size, the RADH TBRA Assistance will be terminated with a 30 day notice to both the participant and the landlord
  • If the participant becomes eligible for Section 8 during their initial one-year lease term under TBRA, the participant may either continue to lease your unit or may relocate to a different unit;
