PROJECT BASED VOUCHER PROGRAM
The Project Based Voucher (PBV) program attaches the rental assistance voucher to private (including BHA-owned) housing units. Under the PBV program, BHA enters into a Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contract with the property owner for specified units and for a specified term.
PBV units are leased to eligible low-income tenants from BHA'S PBV Waiting List or in some cases referred by the property owner.
PBV rental assistance is contractually tied to the unit, as opposed to the tenant. If after one year a family who moves from the project-based unit may be eligible to receive HCV (tenant-based) assistance, if they are in good standings with BHA and if a HCV is available.
Must meet Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program eligibility requirements.
Property owners interested in BHA's PBV program may submit a proposal for the program only in response to an officially advertised Request For Proposals.
