HUD Proposes Comprehensive Regulations for Project-Based Voucher System
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today proposed comprehensive regulations for the new project-based voucher program. In this program, HUD pays rental assistance for eligible families that live in specific housing developments or units. The proposed project-based voucher program replaces the Section 8 project-based certificate program and these regulations would replace the current regulations for the certificate program. The regulations include special provisions for establishing the project-based voucher rent for units in low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) buildings.
