Project Based Voucher Program

What is the Project Based Voucher Program?

The program is funded by the federal government and administered by local public housing authorities (PHAs). The Project Based Voucher program is one part of the Housing Choice Voucher (formerly known as Section 8) program. It helps pay for rent in privately owned rental housing, but only in specific privately owned buildings or units (Important Note: The vouchers are not portable. The subsidy remains with the unit that you are offered. The assistance will not move with you). The PHAs receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program.

A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
