Landlord Information

EDEN, Inc. is a private, nonprofit housing development agency designed to increase the number of decent and affordable housing units available in Cuyahoga County. We oversee housing assistance programs that administer rental assistance funds directly to landlords. These subsidies expand housing opportunities for people in need, and help landlords fill vacancies.

Throughout the years, EDEN has established an excellent record of paying rents on-time, and responding to landlords’ calls and questions. We welcome the opportunity to invite new landlords to participate in our rental subsidy programs. Rents are based on EDEN’s Fair Market Rate guidelines, property location, property condition and amenities.
