Subpart H: Project-Based Assistance (PBA) for Single-Family and Multifamily Units Receiving up to and including $5,000/unit/year

This module provides guidance for program administrators, property owners, property managers, maintenance staff, contractors, and compliance staff, and includes links to handouts that must be provided to tenants. Program administrators are encouraged to make sure the right tools are provided to each of these participants and that they keep proper records.

Subpart H covers residential properties receiving project-based assistance under a HUD program that reduces rents paid by tenants. The requirements of this subpart apply only to the assisted dwelling units in a covered property and any common areas servicing those dwelling units. This portion of Subpart H applies to:

  • A multifamily residential property that is receiving an average of up to and including $5,000 per assisted dwelling unit annually in PBA.
  • A single-family residential property that is receiving PBA through the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation program, the Project-Based Certificate program, or any other HUD program providing PBA.

If the unit receives assistance over $5,000/unit/year, visit Subpart H: PBA over $5,000/unit/year.
