Collection: RAD Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Specialist
The RAD Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Specialist seminar is designed specifically for agencies transitioning their public housing units to the project-based voucher program under the first component of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program. This course is intended as an introduction for public housing or HCV staff transitioning to the PBV program as well as for anyone unfamiliar with RAD PBV. The course begins with an overview of the basics of both RAD component one and PBV and explores the differences between tenant-based vouchers and project-based vouchers as well as the difference between PBV and RAD PBV. Staff will leave with an understanding of how to set rents, how PBV contracts work, how to determine eligibility and operate the waiting list, the basics of inspections, how units are leased, how to organize files, and occupancy issues such as annual recertification, income increases, and terminations.
Based on HUD regulations and guidance, develop and master the skills needed to successfully transition your PHA’s public housing units to the project-based voucher (PBV) program under the first component of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program and ensure long-term compliance.
