Request For Proposals for Project-Based Voucher Program

The Housing Authority of the County of Santa Cruz (“HACSC”) is currently accepting applications from property owners for project-based vouchers (“PBV”) under the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV).

Under the PBV Program, housing authorities can attach an HCV Housing Assistance Payment (“HAP”) Contract to a specific unit if the owner agrees to rehabilitate or construct the unit in accordance with regulations for the PBV Program and HUD’s Housing Quality Standards (“HQS”). The rent for each designated unit in the selected structure(s) would then be subsidized by the housing authority with HUD funds when the owner leases the unit to an eligible family from the housing authority’s waiting list.

RFP Packets are available here and at HACSC’s office at 2160 41st Avenue, Capitola, CA; between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday. Applications may be submitted at any time.

For additional information, please contact the Property Management Department at (831) 454-9455 Ext 223.
