IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PROJECT-BASED VOUCHER (PBV) PROGRAM ASSISTANCE

February 25, 2014

The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda will resume processing requests to convert project-based assistance to tenant-based assistance in order to move, beginning immediately

This notice rescinds an earlier notice which informed participants and the public that effective October 4, 2013 the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda would suspend approving requests to convert project-based assistance to tenant-based assistance due to budgetary constraints making tenant-based vouchers unavailable.

Under ordinary circumstances, participants in project-based voucher units (PBV) are able to request conversion to tenant-based assistance after occupying a PBV unit for at least one year if a voucher is available. If a current PBV participant wishes to move as or after they complete their initial 12-month lease period, the family must submit a written request to be issued a tenant-based voucher (TBV) at least sixty (60) days before they wish to move. Once this conversion is approved in writing, the family would follow all regular move procedures, including providing at least 30 days written notice to the current property owner/manager. Currently, the person who receives requests to convert from PBV to TBV in order to move is Ellen Green.

As with all housing authority policies and procedures, persons with disabilities and certain persons covered by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) may request reasonable accommodations or modifications on a case-by-case basis. If we can assist you with language translation services in order to benefit from the information in this letter, please contact me directly or come to the housing authority office where we can arrange language translation assistance. My direct phone number is (510) 747-4312, or you can send an email to lgleason@lamedahsg.org.

Protect yourself from scams!

We have been advised by another Housing Authority in California that a business by the name of "Home Sweet Home Rentals" is charging Housing Choice Voucher participants looking for apartments/homes $150 for listings of properties and landlords that accept "Section 8". They have heard from participants who have paid money to this service that landlords are not even aware their units are being listed, so both the landlords and participants are being taken advantage of. Participants should not be getting charged for listings of homes/apartments when resources are free online—if someone tries to charge you for services be careful, get receipts, and report fraudulent activity by calling our Director of Rental Assistance, Leslie Gleason, at (510) 747-4312.
