The Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) will be accepting proposals from property owners for the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher Program, known herein as the Project-Based Assistance (PBA) Program. This request for proposal is established pursuant to Title 24, Chapter VIII of the Code of Federal Regulations, 24 CFR Section 983.

Under the PBA program, the OHCD will attach a PBV Housing Assistance Payment Contract (Agreement) to an existing structure or to a structure if the owner agrees to rehabilitate or construct the structure other than with assistance provided under the United States Housing Act of 1937.

The purpose of this program is to encourage property owners to make available rental housing unit(s) to low-income families at rents within the current housing fair market rents.

Rehabilitation or new construction of selected projects cannot begin until the OHCD and the owner(s) have executed an Agreement.
