Becoming a CAP

If you did not see your agency on our active CAP list, your agency will need to complete the CAP application before you can register to become a Rent Well instructor. This process involves submitting some basic information about your agency, reviewing and acknowledging the terms of the agreement. Your application will be submitted to the Rent Well program for review. The minimum qualifications for a CAP are being a nonprofit, publicly funded, or governmental agency focusing on housing which is located in Oregon or Washington. If approved, you will receive an invoice for the one-time licensing fee of $200. If your agency doesn’t meet the minimum qualifications for becoming a CAP, the application will be denied, and you will not receive an invoice.

    Tenant Education Rental Screening Information

    Thanks to a close partnership with Pacific Screening, instructors at CAP agencies can have the ability to run background rental reports for their students, which include credit, criminal, and eviction histories. This report is for educational purposes only, and students can have a copy of their screening report to see what a landlord might see. This is a pillar of the educational program and helps the students better advocate for themselves when talking to a potential landlord. Please note, there is a cost to the background reports, which is very minimal, only $16/report. There is NO set-up fee for having a user account. Once the account is open, your agency is billed monthly only for the screens that are pulled during that month. Agencies are also allowed to pass the partial or full cost on to their students if your agency is unable to cover the cost; the students would pay the agency directly, and the agency would pay the monthly bill.

    Agency Liaison Information

    If your agency is approved to become a community partner, the agency will need a designated agency liaison. The agency liaison would ensure that student data is recorded correctly, keep a list of their agency's instructors, and would be the point of contact for the Rent Well program at their agency.
