Community Development Project Based Voucher also known as PBV

Project-Based Vouchers (PBV)

The project-based component of the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program allows rental assistance to be attached to a specific unit and/or project instead of to an eligible assisted family.

You may be eligible if you have income below 50% of the Area Median Income referenced in the HACSD website. At least 75% of those who use Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers must be extremely low income, with income below 30% of the Area Median Income.

Assisted family can expect to pay approximately 30% of their adjusted monthly income toward rent while the PBV assistance covers the rest.

When there is funding available for Project-Based Voucher developments, we will advertise the request for applications on our website, in the news media and with our industry partner organizations using the NOFA process.

When we review these proposals, we will be looking for projects that contribute to the geographic distribution of affordable housing, promote deconcentration of poverty and further fair housing objectives and projects that have local community support.

  • These projects may serve special needs populations and have corresponding supportive services.
  • Rental assistance vouchers are distributed in limited numbers based on available funding.
  • These projects may be owned by individuals, companies, nonprofits or the Housing Authority of the County of San Diego (HACSD).
