A breakthrough first step in criminal background screening for housing assistance programs
Background checks for housing assistance programs can be time-consuming and complex, delaying the application process. Smart Screen - TenantCheck Government helps housing authorities and property managers approve housing assistance applicants faster.
With a simple social security number input, Smart Screen instantly checks two robust data networks for incarceration and sex offender registry records. The solution returns a "no incarceration or sex offender records found" result for candidates who have no associated records in the networks. This can potentially reduce the manual research involved with traditional background screening processes.
