Project-Based Voucher (PBV)

Program Description

The Project Based Voucher (PBV) program attaches the rental assistance voucher to private (including MRHAVI-owned/operated) housing units. Under the PBV program, MRHAVI enters into a Housing Assistance Payments contract with the property owner for specified units and for a specified term.

PBV units are leased to eligible low-income tenants from MRHA6’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. A family who moves from the project-based unit may be eligible to receive HCV (tenant-based) assistance, if available.

Who is Eligible

  • Must meet Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program eligibility requirements.
  • Property owners interested in MRHA VI’s PBV program may submit a proposal for the program only in response to an officially advertised Request For Proposals.
