HOUSING OF CHOICE

Housing Choice Vouchers, also called Section 8, truly enable housing of choice for thousands of Bridgeport families. The program’s subsidies empower families to choose and lease privately-owned rental housing, fully integrated into diverse communities. Park City Communities manages more than 2,800 Housing Choice Vouchers.

Project Based Vouchers

While most of our vouchers are assigned to families, HUD allows housing authorities to use up to twenty percent as project-based vouchers, in which the subsidies are assigned to a specific property, often with supportive services attached. Currently, PCC has 245 project-based vouchers located in diverse properties throughout the city.

 
Special Programs

Housing Choice Vouchers – specifically those that are project-based – provide a resource that allows PCC to help groups with specific needs through service-enhanced housing. This includes assisting those affected by HIV, chronic homelessness, substance abuse or domestic violence, as well as youth who have aged-out of the foster care system, people with disabilities and veterans. PCC's Housing Choice Voucher program also manages residency of 102 units of single room occupancy with on-site supportive services.
