The Project Based Voucher (PBV) program attaches the rental assistance voucher to private (including SCCHA-owned/operated) housing units. Under the PBV program, SCCHA 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 SCCHA’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.
