What is the Project Based Section 8 housing program?

Project Based Section 8 housing (PBRA) helps more than 2 million people in 1.2 million low-income households to afford apartments. It is a government-funded program that provides rental housing to low-income households in privately owned and managed rental units. The subsidy stays with the building, so when you move out, you no longer have the rental assistance. Most units rental cost will be 30% of your household adjusted gross income. There may be a variety of housing types available through this program including single-family homes, townhomes, or apartments. To find out more, contact your local housing authority.
