If you are an active voucher holder or an applicant already on the MDHCV's 2008 Tenant Based Waiting List, you can register for a Project Based Voucher (PBV) unit.
Interested families are referred to the property for Project-Based assistance when a unit becomes available and in the same order, they are in the 2008 Tenant-Based Waiting List. You must select one or more properties in order to register your interest in the property. You may update your interest to any property at any time.
Please note: PBV units are not available to the general public. Registration is limited to active voucher holders and applicants already on MDHCV's 2008 Tenant Based Waiting List.

Attention Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Applicants, Participants or Landlords - Do Not Be Victims of Identity Fraud Scams. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be a Miami-Dade County Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) employee asking for personal information such as your social security number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, or credit card number, DO NOT provide the caller with any information. The caller may tell you that you have been selected to receive a voucher or that you may lose your voucher if you do not provide the information. If you are in the process of leasing a unit, the caller may tell you that your contract is ready for signing and that your personal identification must be verified. Landlords may be told that they have to pay money to avoid going to a required class. All of these are scams. The Section 8 Program does not require you to pay for any service and will not call you to ask for personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Housing Choice Voucher Program call center at 305-403-3222.
On March 7, 2013, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act 2013 (VAWA 2013) was signed into law. VAWA 2013 protects individuals who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking, regardless of sex, gender identity or sexual orientation, from being denied assistance on the basis of or as a direct result of being a victim of domestic violence. The law was enacted to ensure that Public Housing Agencies and Owners are consistent with HUD's nondiscrimination and equal opportunity requirements.
To ensure that owners are compliant with this Housing and Urban Development VAWA Final Ruling, familiarize yourself with your rights and obligations as an owner of housing assisted through Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development.
Please be advised that PHCD will place abatements on the Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) the day after the second failed inspection for owner violations of Housing Quality Standards (HQS). PHCD will recapture the pro-rated HAP that was paid to the owner. Owners are not eligible for HAP from the day after the second fail until the unit passes inspection.
HUD regulation 24 CFR 982.404 and Section B-3 of the HAP Contract requires that the owner must maintain the contract unit and premises in accordance with HQS. If the owner does not maintain the contract unit in accordance with HQS, PHCD must take prompt and vigorous action to enforce the owner’s obligation including recovery of overpayments, suspension of HAP, abatement, and/or termination of the HAP contract.
Owners are encouraged to take prompt action to correct any HQS violations so they will not have their HAP abated and they will be in compliance with their HAP Contract. Once HAP is abated, owners must request a compliance inspection and the unit must pass in order to end the abatement. Abatements are lifted the day after the pass inspection. Compliance inspections are generally scheduled 10-15 days after the request is made to the Call Center at 305-403-3222.
