Project Based Vouchers

A Project Based voucher is a component of the Federal Housing Choice Voucher Program. Vouchers are attached to a housing unit in a specific property. Project Based Vouchers may be attached to a limited number of units at a property or to all of the units at the property. 

Eligible tenants only receive housing assistance if they live in a unit that has a Project Based Voucher. There is a separate property specific waiting list for each property that has Project Based Vouchers. Applications are accepted when a public notice is issued. You can check availability of waiting lists by clicking “Apply for Housing” 

HACC provides approximately 750 Project Based Vouchers to 15 properties. These properties include two types of Project Based Vouchers. 

MTW Project Based Vouchers are available at properties that may be managed by HACC or may be managed by a private company. MTW Project Based Vouchers are never portable and cannot move with the tenant. If a tenant moves from an MTW Project Based Voucher unit, there is no longer any housing assistance available to the tenant. 

RAD Project Based Vouchers are available at properties that were converted by HACC in 2017 under the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration Program. These properties are all managed by HACC. RAD Project Based Vouchers have a Choice Mobility provision that allows tenants to request a Tenant Based Voucher to move to another location of their choice. If a Tenant Based Voucher is available, HACC must make it available. If a Tenant Based Voucher is not available, the RAD tenant goes to the top of the waiting list for the next available Tenant Based Voucher. All requirements of the Tenant Based Voucher apply.
