  • Housing Choice Vouchers

    The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) provides "tenant-based" rental assistance, so a tenant can move from one unit of at least minimum housing quality to another.  HCV authorizes the payment of rental housing assistance to private landlords on behalf the low-income household.

    HCV also authorizes a variety of "project-based" rental assistance programs, under which the owner reserves some or all of the units in a building for low-income tenants, in return for a Federal government guarantee to make up the difference between the tenant's contribution and the rent in the owner's contract with the government. A tenant who leaves a subsidized project will lose access to the project-based subsidy.

    The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs have created a program called VASH (Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing), or HUD-VASH, which distributes Vouchers to eligible homeless and otherwise vulnerable U.S. armed forces veterans. This program was created to pair HUD-funded vouchers with VA-funded services such as health care, counseling, and case management.

    The Capital Fund program provides funding for physical improvements for the Authority’s 2000 units of housing located within six major development complexes, as well as over 600 scattered site units, including funding for the planning, environmental review, design and construction work.  Depending upon the size, scope and complexity of each project the Department may issue Request for Proposals (RFPs) or Invitations for Bids (IFBs).  All Capital Funded construction work must comply with Davis Bacon wage rates.  In addition to administering the planning, environmental, design and construction work for the Authority the Department also provides staff services to the Authority’s development instrumentality, Baldwin Holdings, Inc.

    Current major redevelopment efforts include the redevelopment of Marina Village Apartments, a 406 residential complex built in 1941, which has outlived its useful life and requires demolition.  The redevelopment will consist of over seven phases of new mixed income residential development on several on and off site parcels of land owned by the housing authority, the city of Bridgeport and private development companies in both the South End and lower East side neighborhoods of the city.  The Housing Authority has partnered with two Co-developers to undertake this 550 million dollar redevelopment effort, which is expected to take several years to complete.
