What is a Project Based Voucher?

A project based voucher is a component of IHA’s Housing Choice voucher program. Unlike a mobile voucher, a PBV is attached to a specific unit. After living in an apartment with a PBV for atleast one year, the family can request a HCV to move from the property. This is not guarenteed and based on voucher availability. Families in units with a PBV pay 30% of their iuncome toward rent and utilities. 

Please see HUD’s website for more information on PBVs:
