Program Type(s)

Properties that offer HUD Project-Based subsidized apartments

Properties that offer HUD Project-Based Subsidized apartments

These properties are private, non-profit or Housing Authority Public rental housing where the federal and/or state government provides subsidies directly to the property through a HUD contract. The property owner or housing authority applies those subsidies to the rents he/she charges income eligible households. Unlike the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher tenant-based subsidy program, Project-based subsidy is not portable or transferrable. It stays with the property. Your rent at a Project-based subsidized property will be approximately 30 % of your adjusted monthly income as long as you qualify. You will need to income qualify and recertify your income at least once per year, or more often if necessary. Applicants for these properties need to qualify between the HUD Extremely Very low (30%) and the HUD Low (80%) annual gross income limits, depending upon program requirements and give preference to lower income limit households. HUD Project-Based programs include, but are not limited to:
HUD Section 8 Multifamily programs
HUD PRAC program for the elderly or disabled
HUD 202/8 program for the elderly
Housing Authority Project Based program

Please call the MAIN CONTACT on each property listing for specific program or property eligibility.

Background Screening Information

Accepting Comprehensive Re-usable Tenant Screening Reports
Not Accepting Comprehensive Re-usable Tenant Screening Reports

Screening Information and Cost (If Any): ____

A comprehensive re-usable tenant screening report (portable report) means a tenant screening report, prepared by a consumer reporting agency at the direction of and paid for by the prospective tenant, and made available directly to a prospective landlord at no charge. Reports are re-usable for 30 days for multiple landlords.

In accordance with Senate Bill 6413 effective 6/9/2016, landlords have the option to either accept or not accept portable reports, and the landlords decision must be included in the landlord’s posted rental criteria.

If the landlord indicates its willingness to accept a comprehensive reusable tenant (portable) screening report, the landlord may access the landlord's own tenant screening report, regarding a prospective tenant, as long as the prospective tenant is not charged for the landlord's own tenant screening report.
