Project-based Voucher Program

Under the Project-Based Voucher Program, the Housing Authority enters into an assistance contract with the owner for specified units and for a specified term. Once the household is deemed eligible, the household enters into a family obligations contract in order to access the subsidized unit. The Housing Authority refers households from its waiting list to the project owner to fill vacancies. Because the assistance is tied to the unit, a family who moves (voluntarily or through eviction) from the unit does not have any right to continued project-based housing assistance.

 

Affordable Housing Program

Under the Affordable Housing Program, the Housing Authority enters into an assistance contract with the participant for specified units and for a specified term. Once the household is deemed eligible, the household enters into a lease in order to access the subsidized unit. The Housing Authority selects households from its waiting list to fill vacancies. Because the assistance is tied to the unit, a family who moves (voluntarily or through eviction) from the unit does not have any right to continued affordable housing assistance.

 

Housing Services Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Program

Under the Housing Services Tenant-based Rental Assistance Program, once the household is deemed eligible the Housing Authority enters into a family obligations contract with the household in order to access rental assistance. The household then rents a house, apartment, or townhome in San Bernardino County. The household enters into a lease with an owner, and the Housing Authority enters into a Contract with the owner in order to provide subsidy for the rent. The assistance is not tied to the unit, which means that a family who moves (voluntarily or through eviction) from the unit has the right to continue housing assistance in a different unit.

Waiting list for this program is currently closed.
