Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab)
WHAT IS THE MODERATE REHABILITATION (MOD REHAB) PROGRAM?
At one time Owners were able to get money from HUD to fix up their properties and after completion receive unit-based assistance on them. The program was called the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Program or Mod Rehab. Portland Housing Authority (PHA) currently administers contracts with two owners of properties here in Portland. The owners receive housing assistance payments from PHA to make up the difference between what the tenant pays and what the rent actually is. This program funding is no longer available for new projects.
