Project Based Voucher Program

Organization: National Center for Children and Families

The Project Based Voucher Program (PBV) is a permanent housing program located in Silver Spring, Maryland which serves an annual average of 38 children and their parents. Families apply for a voucher through the Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC), after experiencing homelessness. The families have moderate to high barriers which led to homelessness, e.g., multiple evictions, chronic homelessness, and serious health conditions. PBV allows children and their parents to live independently in Silver Spring apartments that are leased by NCCF. Families approved by HOC obtain a subsidized housing voucher for an unlimited amount of time, or until participants have sufficiently increased their income and no longer require a subsidy.

While participating in the PBV program, participants receive case management services through NCCF, community referrals/resources, and goal oriented Individual Service Plans to assist them in maintaining stable housing. PBV families benefit greatly from the NCCF hosted events such as the annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Family Services Holiday Party, and Santa’s Workshop. Participants rely on donations and volunteer services including food, clothing, furniture, household goods, toys, bikes, diapers, access to community events, and holiday celebrations.
