Project Based Voucher (PBV) Program

Similar to the Housing Choice Voucher Program, the Project Based Voucher (PBV) Program provides low-and moderate-income households with monthly rental assistance. However, PBV assistance is tied to particular units rather than to the tenant. Rhode Island Housing administers PBV assistance for 312 units in 21 privately-owned rental properties in Rhode Island.

Eligible households pay 30% of their adjusted monthly income toward rent and the PBV Program pays the difference. Families must qualify for the number of bedrooms based on household size and composition. Each PBV rental property may have its own tenant selection process and preferences. Please refer to the Rental Resource Guide, Page 19, for additional information about each PBV rental property.


Applications for these rental properties are available online, at Rhode Island Housing and at each rental property. If you choose to apply online you may click on the "APPLY HERE" link below and you will be redirected to a website to complete one or more online applications. A drop-down menu will list the available rental properties and provide access to an application for each. Please review the eligibility requirements for these properties before submitting your application(s). Upon completion of your online application(s), you MUST CLOSE OUT OF YOUR BROWSER TO PREVENT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM BEING ACCESSED BY UNAUTHORIZED VIEWERS.


After completing your online application, you can check your application status by clicking on the "CHECK STATUS" link below. The system will ask for your year of birth and password. You may also access your status by calling 1-877-567-1487. For more information, contact us at kalmonte@rihousing.com or 401-429-1483.
