Project Based Voucher Program

Tab Group

Basic Info

Project-based vouchers (PBVs) are a component of a public housing agency’s (PHA’s) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. PHAs are not allocated additional funding for PBV units; the PHA uses its tenant-based voucher funding to allocate project-based units to a project. Projects are typically selected for PBVs through a competitive process managed by the PHA; although in certain cases projects may be selected non-competitively.

DCA is currently receiving requests for PBVs.  

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) requests proposals from developers for the Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Program.  PBV proposals are being accepted for new and existing housing construction projects within the state of Georgia. See DCA’s 2024 Request for PBV Proposals.
