Project Based Voucher is similar to the Section 8 Voucher in that participants will pay approximately 30% of their income toward rent and utilities however, with this program, the assistance is tied to a specific unit. The units are located in affordable housing developments throughout Jackson County.
Since 1997, HAJC has been awarded special purpose voucher types to serve non-elderly (under age 62) persons with disabilities (NED). These NED vouchers enable non-elderly persons or families with disabilities to access affordable housing on the private rental market by paying a rental subsidy to the landlord.
Only income eligible families whose non-elderly and disabled head of household, spouse or co-head may receive a NED voucher. Families with only a minor child with a disability are not eligible. Some NED vouchers are specific for non-elderly disabled individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or living in an institutional setting.
Applicants will be selected from the HCV waiting list as vouchers become available. Additional paperwork may be required.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have created a program called Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH), or HUD-VASH, which distributes vouchers every year to eligible homeless and otherwise vulnerable U.S. armed forces veterans. This program was created to pair HUD-funded vouchers with VA-funded services such as health care, counseling, and case management.
