​​​Tenant-Based Rental Programs
KHC provides rental assistance directly to applicants through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, also known as Section 8. This provides a voucher that moves with the recipient to different rental units that accept it.​
​​Project-Based Rental Programs
KHC's Project-Based Contract Administration (PBCA) program provides rental assistance to specific complexes for low-income residents. The subsidy is paid directly to the owner on behalf of the resident. The rental subsidy does not follow the resident from property to property.​
​​​​​Rental Partners
Through the execution of federal Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contracts,​ KHC is able to provide rental assistance through the PBCA program and the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program.​​
