RFP for the Project-Based Vouchers
The Suisun City Housing Authority (SCHA) is inviting developers and property owners to submit proposals for participation in the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Program. The primary purpose of this allocation is to create new or preserve existing rental units that are safe, decent, sanitary, and affordable to low-income individuals and families.
SCHA is providing up to 64 project-based vouchers for existing, new, or rehabilitated units not already receiving rental subsidies. The PBV units will be leased to eligible low-income households referred by the SCHA or to eligible tenants in occupancy of the unit at the time of submission of the proposal. An additional 32 units may be awarded to projects specific to exception categories discussed below.
The maximum a housing project may be allocated is the greater of 25 units or 25 percent of the total units on the property. An exception may be made in the case of a housing project for seniors or persons with disabilities that are receiving supportive services, in which case up to 100 percent of the units in such projects may be proposed for PBV assistance. If dwelling units are designated for one or more of the above exception categories, an additional 32 project-based units may be requested for these populations bringing the total to 96 PBV units.
All financing of the project costs and operating expenses will be the responsibility of the owner. Rents that are established for the project will be commensurate with other comparable rents for similar units in the area in which the project is located. In no event will the rent and utility allowance exceed 110 percent of the established Fair Market Rent or any HUD-approved exception payment standard for Suisun City.
Participation in the PBV Program requires compliance with Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Requirements, and Federal Labor Standards will apply to eligible projects.
