The Benton-Franklin Rental Owners Association (BROA), an incorporated
non-profit organization, primarily represents members from Richland,
Kennewick and Pasco  (commonly called the Tri-Cities) although there are
members from several of the surrounding communities, and out-of-state and
country, such as Benton City, Prosser, Grandview and Connell. In addition, there
are members from California, Canada, etc. who have moved from the
Tri-Cities,  still own rentals here, and want to keep in touch with what is
happening in the local rental industry.

The organization was formed in 1962 by a group of concerned residential rental
property owners.  It was founded for the purpose of serving the interests and
welfare of its members who are owners and operators of rental housing
properties. The association seeks to protect private property rights from the
inroads of government controls, and to advise and disseminate information to
its members relative to the more economical operation and maintenance of
their rental properties.

Today, more than 50 years later, there are 250 - 325 members, representing
several thousand units in the Tri-Cities and outlying areas, and over 25
commercial members. With membership in BROA, there are many benefits as
outlined below. However, the primary ones include education, rental forms, and
legislative representation.
