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.
If the family moves out of the unit PHA stops paying that owner. The family can move to another approved unit and have their voucher assistance paid to their new landlord.
Under the Project-Based Voucher program, PHA enters into a housing assistance payments (HAP) contract with the owner for certain units and for a specific amount of time. Because the housing assistance is tied to the unit, a family who moves from that unit does not take it with them.
