What are the benefits of participating in the Project-Based Voucher program?
Contract units are set aside for low-income individuals and families increasing affordable housing options. Eligible tenants always pay only 30% of their adjusted monthly income towards rent and utilities even if the rent for the apartment increases in the future. Your apartment is inspected to ensure that it is in good condition before it may be approved for the program.
