What is the difference between Housing Choice Voucher and Project-based Voucher?

The main difference between the two programs is that the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) is tenant-based assistance, meaning that the tenant may use the assistance in any unit of their choice, provided the property owner is willing to accept it. The Project-based Voucher (PBV) assistance is tied to the unit, meaning that the tenant who lives in the assisted unit, receives the assistance while they live in the unit.
