The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) currently will be accepting Preliminary Applications for its Project Based Voucher (PBV) Program effective immediately. Preliminary applications are being accepted for all five (5) projects that we serve. The PBV program enables DCA to provide assistance to an affordable safe decent rental unit. Project Based Vouchers are used at selected developments where providers of supportive services focus on special needs populations. The Department of Human Resources identifies the target population and refers clients to DCA for the program.
