Q. What is a Project Based Voucher?

A. Project based vouchers are a component of the Housing Choice Voucher system. These vouchers are tied to a specific property. Project based vouchers cannot be moved to another property.

Q. How long can I keep the Project Based Voucher?

A. If your income is not sufficient for you to pay 100% of your rent and utilities, you have not violated the program’s rules, moved out of the unit and funding is available, you will keep the voucher indefinitely. If you move out of the property for any reason, the project-based voucher will be used to house a new participant in the building.

Q. When will I receive a regular Housing Choice Voucher?

A. You must remain in the project-based unit for a minimum of one year. After the one year initial participation, if the Housing Authority has available voucher funds, project-based voucher participants will receive preference for those funds.

Q. Who is my landlord?

A. Residents of Catoctin View Homes will sign a lease with the Management Company, TM Associates. The Housing Authority will only be responsible for administering the rental subsidy for your unit. All other interactions will be with the landlord.

Q. I just applied for the Catoctin View Homes Project Based Voucher Waiting List, what do I do now?
