RAD Project-Based Voucher Specialist


The RAD Project-Based Voucher Specialist seminar is designed specifically for agencies transitioning their public housing units to the project-based voucher (PBV) program under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program. This course is designed as an introduction for public housing or HCV staff transitioning to the PBV program as well as for anyone unfamiliar with RAD PBV. The course begins with an overview of the basics of both RAD and PBV. The differences between tenant-based vouchers and project-based vouchers as well as the difference between PBV and RAD PBV are also explored. Staff will leave with an understanding of how to set rents, PBV contracts, how to determine eligibility and operate the waiting list, the basics of inspections, how units are leased, how to organize files and occupancy issues such as annual recertification, income increases, and terminations. Updated for HOTMA!

*Now updated for the new student rule guidance.
