The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allows local Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that already administer a tenant-based Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance program under an Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) with HUD to locally choose take up to 20 percent of that PHAs authorized HCV units and attach the Section 8 rental assistance funding to specific units (Project-Based) rather than using it for tenant-based vouchers.

AHA has Project Based Voucher (PBV) rental assistance benefits that are tied to units at specific apartment complexes. This rental assistance is not a portable rental benefit. The PBV rental assistance cannot be transferred to pay rent at any other rental unit or property.
