Do I Qualify for Project Based Vouchers?

You may qualify for a project-based voucher unit if your household income is 50% or less of the area’s annual median income. The chart below shows the income limit based on household size. Additionally, some affordable housing properties may have their own qualification rules besides just income.

You will need to contact the property you are interested in to see if you meet its unique qualifications.

If you meet HUD’s definition of chronically homeless you may be eligible for a PBV that is set aside for Permanent Supportive Housing.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE CHRONICALLY HOMELESS?

How HUD defines “Chronically Homeless”

To be considered ‘‘chronically homeless,’’ an individual has a disability and lives in either 1) a place not meant for human habitation; 2) a safe haven; 3) an emergency shelter; or 4) an institutional care facility for less than 90 days and immediately before entering it lived in a place not meant for human habitation, a safe haven or an emergency shelter.

The individual must have lived as described above for at least 12 months continuously, or on at least four separate occasions in the past three years if the occasions totaled at least 12 months. Each break separating the occasions must include at least seven nights in a place other than the situations described in the first paragraph.
