Moderate Rehabilitation

What is the Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab) program?
The Mod Rehab program provides Project-Based Rental Assistance for low to moderate income families. Project-based rentals are a component of the Housing Authority of the City of Frederick (HACF) Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program in which the HACF have a contract with a specific building/property to fill the vacancies with participants from the Mod Rehab waiting list.

What is a Project-Based Voucher?
Under the Project-Based Rental Assistance program, the HACF refers families from its waiting list to the landlord of the specific building to fill vacancies. Since the assistance is tied to the unit, a family who moves away from a Project-Based unit does not have any right to continued housing assistance.

General Eligibility & Guidelines
Eligibility for voucher programs is determined by the PHA based on the total annual gross income and household size. In general, the household income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area. Median income levels are published by HUS and vary by location. A background check is required and a Criminal Offender Records Information (CORI) screening will be conducted prior to admitting an applicant to the program. Voucher programs are limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status.

What steps must I take to participate in the program?
The waiting list is currently OPEN for Moderate Rehabilitation at 117 S. Market Street, the Carriage House. The ModRehab application can be picked up at our main office, 209 Madison Street.
