Section 8 Project-Based Voucher Program

About Project-Based Vouchers

The Section 8 Project-Based Voucher program provides a monthly rental subsidy for low-income households, with rent typically 30 percent of adjusted monthly household income. The Project-Based Voucher program differs from the tenant-based Housing Choice Voucher program in that the rental subsidy is tied to the housing development, or to a unit within the development.

Application Process

The GRHC is currently accepting new applicants to developments supported through this program.

Please note that there are currently waiting lists for all GRHC-owned project-based developments.

Voucher Portability

After one year of occupancy in a project-based unit, if the tenant adheres to all lease requirements, the household is eligible for tenant-based assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher program or other tenant-based assistance program. Read the Project-Based Voucher section of the GRHC’s Section 8 Adminstrative Plan for more information about the Project-Based program.
