There are different Section 8 Voucher Programs. These give people in need other alternatives to get rental assistance.
For example, the “Project-Based Voucher Program”.
People on the waiting list can apply to a list of properties enrolled in the program. Owner reviews Prospect Tenant’s background and approves or denies the application.
The voucher is issued to the Unit and Not to the tenant. Therefore a family who moves from the project-based unit does not have any right to continued housing assistance. However, they may be eligible for a tenant based voucher when one becomes available.
