Developing and Managing Project-Based Vouchers


The Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Program is an optional program that provides PHAs with a flexible tool to increase housing opportunities for low-income families and may provide PHAs with improved voucher utilization in tight markets. This course focuses on the concepts that you need to master in order to successfully select and manage project-based voucher properties. PHAs have a lot of flexibility to tailor the PBV program to seize opportunities for long-term affordable housing and to meet local needs. While the PBV program is a component of the Housing Choice Voucher program, many of its rules are different. Understanding the key programmatic differences and PBV rules provides a foundation for successful program management. On the other hand, not understanding and managing the program to comply with program rules can be very costly in time, money, and consequences. Updated for HOTMA!
