How do families qualify for project-based vouchers?
The Portland Housing Authority (PHA) takes applications from individuals or families and places them on a waiting list for a specific Project-Based Voucher (PBV) project or projects indicated by the applicant.

Applicants must meet the same eligibility standards required under the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. Owners screen and select applicants from the waiting list when units become vacant.
