Request for Proposals - PBV/VASH Housing Choice Voucher

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority seeks to award Housing Choice Voucher program (“HCV”) project based vouchers (“PBV”) for VASH to a qualified respondent to develop affordable housing for Project-Based Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing as detailed in the Scope of Services section of this RFP.

The Project-Based Voucher program (“PBV”) is a component of IHCDA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program (“HCV”). IHCDA may allocate up to 20 percent of its voucher assistance to specific housing units if the owner agrees to either rehabilitate or construct the units, or the owner agrees to set-aside a portion of the units in an existing development for PBV-eligible tenants. Rehabilitated units must require at least $1,000 of rehabilitation per unit to be subsidized, and all units must meet U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) housing quality standards. Operating a PBV program is consistent with IHCDA’s Annual Plan, and its goal of deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic opportunities.

Additionally, these HUD-VASH vouchers are to support homeless veterans and their families in accessing affordable housing with an array of supportive services through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The Jesse Brown VA Medical Center will assist with the project that is awarded funding in providing support and referrals. The vouchers are being made available from a set-aside from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 (Public Law 114-113), enacted on December 18, 2015, that provided funding for HUD-VASH vouchers as authorized under section 8(o)(19) of the United Stated Housing Act of 1937.

IHCDA anticipates awarding up to 75 vouchers selected from proposals submitted in accordance with this RFP.
