On December 26, 2019, HUD published in the Federal Register a 60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Project Based Vouchers (PBV) Online Form. HUD’s intent is to fill a gap in existing HUD data, which currently only collects tenant-level data and HA level data on project based vouchers. HUD does not currently collect property level data on this program that allows local housing authorities to attach tenant-based Housing Choice Vouchers to specific units.
