Project-Based Rental Assistance

Bookmark and Share

KHC's Project-Based Rental Administration (PBRA) Program provides rental assistance for very low- and low-income residents living in certain apartment complexes throughout Kentucky.  The subsidy is tied to specific complexes and paid directly to the owner on behalf of the resident, thereby lowering the portion of rent for which the resident is responsible.

Anyone renting a subsidized unit must meet income and program guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the property owner.  The rental subsidy does not follow the resident from property to property. 

As the contract administrator for HUD, KHC staff works to ensure that the property owners, management agencies and residents adhere to the requirements of the program.  KHC staff performs annual on-site visits of each property, desk reviews and handles resident concerns and questions.

KHC also assists property owners with renewing their federal Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contracts, along with adjusting rents and reviewing utility allowances.  HAP contracts are renewed to help ensure the continued availability of affordable housing in Kentucky.

Property owners must develop and make public written resident selection policies and procedures that include descriptions of the eligibility requirements and income limits for admission.  The managers of these participating apartment complexes will accept applications from those needing rental assistance.  All applicants must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the owner’s resident selection plan.  HUD requires these plans to be made available to the public.  Individuals listed on the state lifetime sex offender registry are excluded from program participation.

To apply for a Project-Based Rental Assistance apartment, please contact the property directly.  The application process will be handled by the on-site property manager.
