Project-Based Voucher Waitlists
The New Castle Housing Authority maintains separate Project-Based Voucher (PBV) waitlists for specific units located at the Historic Jennings Apartments. For these vouchers, rental assistance is tied to a specific unit. Once you complete the application for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waitlist lottery, you can choose to apply for the individual Project Based waitlist. Completing the (PBV)application is for the PBV units only and NOT for the general affordable housing complex. If your name is reached and you are selected for a PBV unit, you will receive rental assistance for that specific unit only. You will be required to stay in that unit for at least one year. If you choose to move from the Project Based unit after one year, you may be issued a Housing Choice Voucher as one becomes available, which would allow you to move to another unit and continue to receive rental assistance.

If you are a person with a disability and you need a disability-related accommodation to access any programs, services, or activities provided by the New Castle Housing Authority, you may contact the New Castle Housing Authority at (765)529-7680. Translation services are available upon request.
