Section 8 Landlords

Effective July 1, 2018, payments to Section 8 landlords and all other vendors will be processed in the Housing & Community Development (HCD) Department utilizing its new Emphasys Elite Software program and payments will no longer be processed through the City of Tucson's central Finance Department.  As such HCD is launching its new Landlord Portal through which landlords can not only look up 12 months of payments but can also see a listing of contracts, inspection notices, inspection results, and abatements.  All active landlords will receive a letter in the mail providing a registration code to register for access to the portal.

The Landlord Portal User Guide can be found here.  If you are a managing agent responsible for properties with contracts associated with more than one Tax ID # please email and a staff member will contact you to set up your managing agent role on the portal.
