​​​​​​The Ann Arbor Housing Commission is in the process of converting all of its public housing properties​ to project-based vouchers under the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program.  

View the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy​ (PDF), which governs the public housing programs. 

The Public Housing (PH) and Project Based Voucher (PBV) programs are very similar from the tenant's perspective. Under both programs, the tenant pays 30 percent of the adjusted household income on rent, and HUD provides a rental subsidy to the AAHC for the difference between the tenant's rent and the cost of the apartment. The subsidy is attached to the apartment under both programs and the AAHC is the property manager.

Section 8​ is another rental subsidy program under which a voucher is used to help qualified residents obtain housing from any private landlord that will accept Section 8 participants in Washtenaw and Monroe counties. Tenants pay that landlord the calculated rent, and the Housing Commission pays the landlord the difference between the rent and the actual cost of the apartment.
