What is the difference between the Housing choice voucher and Project-based voucher waiting lists?

Housing Choice Vouchers is defined as tenant-based assistance wherein the assistance is tied to the family. It provides rental assistance for families in the private rental market and the family can choose any housing units that meets the requirements of the program.
Project-Based Vouchers are tied to a specific unit in a property contracted with the Housing Authority. Applicants selected for a Project-Based Waiting List may only receive a Project-Based Voucher at a specific property.
Applicants who were selected for both the Tenant-Based and Project-Based Waiting Lists will only be removed from a list for which they have been selected. Applicants cannot transfer to the Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List from the Project-Based Waiting List or to another Housing Authority.
